Hi, I earlier bought a new BBB just to simplify because the usb port came off my first board, they are pretty weak. I have clamped the new usb on the replacement to prevent the same damage again. I have just bought an audio expander cape and am wondering if I can modify the sd card to use ethernet and 5volt power instead of usb on the faulty board, and run the browser IDE as usual?
Otherwise I am thinking of coding on the fully working BBB, then swapping to run the code using 5 volts power, but I will still need ethernet or wifi to communicate with osc. I also have a usb wifi that was recommended on a bela course at summerset house, and will need to learn to mod the sd card, and I am looking for sd card tips, because I need to flash one for the 2nd unit, and I forgot to add a sd card to my recent order.
