How do I "unbrick" the Electronic Brick shield?
- I extend 2 buckled plugs from the shield with male-to-male headers.
- As far as I can understand from their cookbook - white supplies gnd, red gives +5v, and black is the signal - so I take the gnd and +5v from *one* of these cables and connect them to the breadboard's -/+ busses. Black goes to the switch (and to gnd via a pul-up resistor).
- The second switch takes +5v from its plug's red line (could also take it from the bus - but it looks neater this way), The other side of the switch goes to the black line (yellow jumper).
This tilt switch setup is pretty simple (I've tested it without the Electronic brick shield - sending the inputs from them to LEDs - and it works fine).
I've also tried "unbricking" the LCD brick itself (That's what I'm really after) by sticking jumpers into the holes in the bus cable (according to what I've gathered from the Electronic Brick cookbook), and I couldn't get it to show anything or turn on the backlight.
Is there some voodoo I'm missing here?
