I will manage to do it in the same way that you did.
Did you use 10k ohm resistor?

i did, i routed around my old circuit board collection and found one. they're a fairly common value resistor. the 10k res gets connected from #15 on the DNA 60 to the incoming 5v USB. so anywhere you can find 5v USB on either of your sandwhiched daughter boards.  20161208_220515.jpg  20161208_220537.jpg

And, hopefully, my VF will have dna60 heart after this experiment

if i had to guess, i would say the hardest part of your build is going to be the soldering of tiny enamel coated wires to the USB data -/+ pinouts of the micro USB socket. hard but def doable. if you have any problems, just post em or shoot me a PM. Good Luck!

I did manage to solder it today. Board was recognized in escribe, battery charging working as far as I can tell.

But, when assembling VF I did manage to brake screen [biggrin]

Ordered new one, when it arrives this will be finally done.

it's a right of passage to break at least one Evolv DNA screen when modding [biggrin]. glad to hear it's working out for you. please be sure to post some pics in the DNA 60 thread. also mention any traps for young players/first timers, so they can be avoided.
