Used Pi Model B

Sat Feb 09, 2013 10:39 am

Hi all.
Does anyone have a Model B with cosmetic problems which still works?
ie soldered to, unstable, connector damage etc but still boots.
If so I am interested as for my project it only has to work in an RC car which is likely not to survive very long due to aggressive cats, stupid drivers etc.
Thanks!!

I have one Model B 256MB here but it is in use.

-A

On an aside, has anyone else done the underclocking mod by xtal replacement yet?!

Why do you want a used one?! By the time you payed anyone packaging and postage, you may as well have already bought yourself a BRAND new Model A or B one!!! ;)

Personally I don't think it will be worth it! For £20 the Model A is probably your cheapest option!

Hi, yes ordering a Model A is likely to be cheaper :mrgreen:
Also, does anyone happen to know what the lower limit for SD cards is on these, as in my drawer I found a 1GB eMMC which is not currently in use and otherwise fits in the Pi's port without sticking out at all.

Its got the correct number of pins by the looks of it.

thanks!

I have a copy of R Razor that runs off of a 1g ;)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick
