The Big Bang


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I made a Huge error ,
I was trying too up the battery pack I use for my pineapple so I went out and got a 12v Lead acid Battery I may have made a mistake i think i may have switched the + and the - , I have checked the previous posts regarding this , but i think as i plugged it in quick, saw big sparks , yanked it out, i know someone else has blown the FP6118 but i blew the L18 component on the board , and have no idea what to replace it with or where too start , does anyone know which component this is , i am quite confident in soldering and have all the tools to do so , but i have no idea what component it is , can anyone help?

as i said the component is labeled L18 (in the top right hand corner). i think it may be some form of power re-stricter / limiter to save anything else getting blown.

Side note*
Mr protocol, I looked at replacement Hornet boards last night , am I right in assuming that these boards would come with no firmware on at all ,(would i have to dump the firmware on there via serial?)
or do you recon it would come with alfa firmware where i could "update" to pineapple?

Tried to look up your order and see if we could send you a new board but I'm not finding anything from your d***gmail address. Hit us up.

Nevermind, found your Ice W*** address. Board on it's way to Manchester now. It should be blank so you can either serial flash it or if you need to recover stuff off your existing board and are so adventurous, try to swap out the power regulator that's likely blown.

We love you, man. :) Round of applause and kind thoughts headed your way.
