Buying only PCB?
« on: December 05, 2011, 09:39:51 PM »
Hi everyone,

Preen looks amazing! I love little boxes like this. :D

Is there any chance of selling the PCBs loose from the whole kit? Or possibly the components + PCB? I'd love to build one in my own case.

Great project!

Hi Ryan,

Thanks  :D

I have some PCBs left (but not anymore the components to solder on it).

Contact me at the adress here :
http://www.preenfm.net/Contact
Or PM me on this forum (haven't tried the PM yet).

Replied.

I might be posting here for some tips on building the code as well. :)

Thanks!

Explaining how to build the code is on my todo list and will be on the main site.
It's not straightforward.

If you want to try :

You need a Linux machine and to compile libmaple first.
Take the libmaple 0.0.11 also from gibhub:
https://github.com/leaflabs/libmaple/
Rename limaple directory to "libmaple".

and follow the instructions here :
http://leaflabs.com/docs/index.html

Go ahead untill you can compile it with the ARM cross compiler.

Once this is done, you made the most difficult part.

Take the PreenFM sources from github
https://github.com/ixox/preen

Put the preenFM tree at the same level as the "libmaple" directory.

Go in the PreenFM tree, then "make" then "make install".

ah ok. Is there a way to load the firmware then without having to compile all the code from source? I don't have a linux box. :(

Of course, recompiling is only if you want to modify anything...

Here are the instructions to flash a firmware :

And it do work on new Maple Mini.
