Oops? Gen 4 Reset Fix
by jetty, published
Has that happened to you?
When a bot is connected to a computer via USB, and the bot is powered on, the LCD on your Gen 4 Interface is corrupted or blank, requiring a press of the reset button to fix.
Don't wear out your reset button or fumble in the dark for that elusive button!
Instead solder a single wire to your V2.4 Motherboard and run V2.3 or higher of my firmware, then all your troubles will melt away.
As this isn't something you print, if you build it, please click on "I Made One" and submit a picture of your Gen 4 LCD Interface or soldering.
Solder a piece of wire between ATX Pin 8 (Power OK - Colored Grey) and Arduino Mega Pin Analog 10 on the Motherboard. (Attached photos show where you need to solder the wire)
Cover junctions with a piece of kapton tape to stop movement

ATX pinout can be found here: http://pinouts.ru/Power/atxpower_pinout.shtml
Arduino Mega pinout can be found here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardMega2560 (it's labelled "Analog In - A10" on the board).
