Oops? Gen 4 Reset Fix
by jetty, published
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.

Yes, that's what it does. The logic is, if the motherboard is running (i.e. in it's normal operating loop) and power good changes from off to on, then a reset is issued to the motherboard. So it won't effect things like firmware uploading etc.
I was surprised when I got it. Specifically, I thought, "I could do a better job than that" :-). I don't if you've noticed, but there's something wrong with that solder, seems to have a higher than normal melting point and whatever it's contaminated with seems to cause issues with fixing the joint. Often I need to solder suck, then resolder.
