  • The fix is easy though. Just cut into the back of the Pico where I drew the red line, cutting through the traces that are there.

    Or use another USB extension. Any sensible one will have little sprung bits of metal in it, spaced either side of the centre... and those won't gouge into the PCB and won't short out the data lines even on the board where the Apple extension went through.

    I shouldn't have added a Micro USB socket outline. I wonder how many people have even used it? Maybe it's something I should just remove on the next revision... It looks like Mini USB wouldn't cause any problems, it's just having the Micro one that sucks.
