Hello, can anyone help identify this resistor on an oled switch?

New OLED specific chip from AliExpress installed successfully. Not recommended for quick and easy installs. The flex PCB for the CPU bends too much, puts a bit of pressure on the CPU resistors in my opinion, but it's strong enough to hold, I'm not worried. The flex PCB up top is just garbage...takes ALOT of time to get it right, I even cut off part of it and manually wired 3.3v and ground.

TLDR: This new OLED model is poorly designed, but works. Be prepared to put in extra time to install it properly.

Hopefully this helps you out if you get this revision :)

Is this the new "new" version with the C-shaped flex cable and taps directly to the CLK point? I thought this would be the better version TBH.

Why anyone would choose this over the 6 wire one is beyond me.

It's this one. I cut off part of the flex PCB (the U shaped one) because it goes over a chip to reach the 3.3v/ground, thus it goes up in the air. After I cut it, that PCB flex piece lays FLAT :) Much more secure. If you don't let it lay flat, then you don't have to manually wire 3.3v and ground, as it will go through that flex pcb and plug into the top of the chip.
to be fair though, if done correctly, this new chip and cables are much cleaner. I believe, also re-programmable. (?)
Without the USB debug port it's not easily flashable. You'll probably have to solder wires to the chip pins to flash it...

@Modzvilleusa does alot of installs, he's good. He also believes this version is poorly designed :D

Something to note, is that version states "F2v1-6" on the ribbon cable vs the "F3v1-7" on the other new OLED chip (6 wire one mentioned), I figured it was the newer revision and thus ordered the later. Just arrived, waiting on a few other items before installing, guess we'll see how it goes.

Ahhhh...so maybe mine is the 'older' version?! And it is superceded by the 6 wire version...makes more sense...
Eh, I don't care. I'm up and running!

Yeah that's all that matters! I had not heard of these SD card issues until now, I sure hope I don't have issues...

The 6 wire one is also able to be flashed (I flashed mine so I know it is) and is half the price.

How "clean" the install looks is a trivial matter and doesn't make a single difference as long as it's installed correctly.

Its also 1/2 the price.

Is it safe to do a first chip boot (for testing) without using the heatsink?

My 2 cents here… I got a different OLED modchip variant than sean222’s.

Mine has the USB port and comes with a different set of ribbon cables and EMMC adapter.

This adapter is smaller than the other versions, but it’s anchor point fixes it very well. It’s easy to insert under the EMMC and doesn’t require frame cutting.

It comes flashed with Spacecraft 0.2 from factory.

It’s not perfect - sometimes mine takes some seconds to glitch successfully - but it’s good enough.

Nice and clean install. Good job! I like this version better than mine...but I was impatient and I couldn't find your version for sale on Ali.
