Making an extension-PCB with capacitive buttons for FP2

I think we can afford that. :slight_smile:

That’s great work! Now with the released cover files you can easily create a fitting cover!

That saved me hours of tinkering !! :smiley:

State of the project: PCB is working :+1: Volume up / down is working with the phone (and also computers :smiley: ) :+1: case is in construction :slight_smile:

Edit: Case construction finished :smiley:

Edit: Code for basic functionality finished :smiley:

Here you can see the result of printing the edited case files :slight_smile:

The pcb is just fitting perctly into my designe :slight_smile:

But what do you think? :slight_smile:

Great work! I enjoy following this development. :smiley:

I hope that the #communityportal will soon be able to promote these #hardware:diy hacks. Maybe you can even team up with @jayy and build a proper 3D-printed case for the QI charger extension.

Hey Cherry,
this project is really cool! If I would have a FP2, I would order one module from you, but I am still on FP1 :wink:

Thats Kind of hard… But next time I will use a smaller clock, trust me :stuck_out_tongue:

Anyone interessted to get a cap. touch PCB ? :slight_smile:
Code is fully working and touch is working smoothly :slight_smile:
Everything soldered up: 30 € (includes shipping)
With 3d-printed case: 35 € ( includes shipping, support not removed)

Text me if you want one and better be fast it’s the last one I have :slight_smile:

Edit: Last one is gone !! :slight_smile:

Hey, I received my parcel today! Thanks @Cherry97! :slight_smile:

It doesn’t work on my FP2 running Lineage OS, but I quickly assembled another FP2 from the austrian fairphoners’ #spareparts stock and there (with standard FP OS) it works neatly. Only after playing with it a bit the phone started to reboot periodically.

I haven’t gotten around to test this much further as I’m currently sick and also I didn’t want to strain the spare parts too much.

But I’ll definitely take it with me to the internal austrian fairphoners meeting in January, so the others can try it there.

I had the same problem with lineage but with normal OS it worked for me :dizzy_face:
I also tested it on my phone :thinking:
Hmm thats strange … :thinking:
I’m 100% sure that the hardware I send you is okey :thinking: maybe the otg-service of the phone is crashing ?
Can you check the log ?

I hope you convalesce!!

That of course might, but must not be caused by the extension-PCB, as I experience that kind of unwanted behaviour as well with my standard FP2 with FPOS. Haven’t been able to put it down to something special, but, as it so far settles after a while, I don’t bother too much. :wink:
