Applied power in reverse - any chance I can resurrect it?
So, yeah, big-time rookie mistake - I applied power to my KiwiSDR in reverse polarity. That unmistakable smell of burnt electronics quickly followed. Is there any chance I just killed something easy(ish) to fix, or should I just be ordering another one at this point?
The BeagleBone Green still seems to boot up just fine when I disconnect the Kiwi board and power it via the micro USB port. Who knows what damage may have been done to the GPIO pins, but at least I can back up my configuration (which I should have done long ago!)
