Gameboy Zero Almost 100% Finished

I have now almost finished my Gameboy Zero build. It in a built working state but missing audio. I had audio working but then add issues with my usb hub. I now currently have just one USB socket connected up which currently has the WIFI dongle. I have the battery connected up and sticking out the top of the cartridge hole.

I have now changed the USB cabling since this picture was taken. Im now using an old damaged usb cable which fixed all the problems I was having with my USBs. L and R are also connected up and glued in place and soldered to the correct GPIO pins. Powerboost and battery are connected up also.

Stay tuned for more updates.
