I wanted rid of the disgusting sticker on the back, but as it turns out, Sony do a better job of making stickers than they do lasers. It wouldn't peel off.
The trick seems to be a syringe of isopropanol and careful scraping with something softer than the PS2 plastics - I used an iTunes giftcard.
The isopropanol didn't instantly dissolve the glue like it does with other stuff, so who knows, maybe water or soap or something would have worked instead. Who cares.
The finished result I was happy with though, no nasty sticky marks left at all.
O - 2
G/W - 3
G - 6
Kynar in blue and red (it's all I had).
For power, I used scraps of cable from an ATX PSU. Overkill, but again, best I could find laying around.
Firstly, the bunch of cable you see top left I guess is too thin internally - 4.4 or so between TP1 and 2. I'll deal with that later, so I croc clipped directly on in the mean time.
The Pi didn't like the USB drive. Had I destroyed something? Broken the USB Hub? Hmmm...
I should add, although the pic doesn't show here, I did try and power the hub though the DC jack in case the R-Pi couldn't handle it on its own - made no difference at all.
Well, I guess I'll have to buy some more USB hubs and hope the Pi "likes" them.
...to be continued.
