    Hey, I've been trying to make this project too but I am stumped at the regulator step. I have a lack of experience when it comes to wiring stuff, so maybe that's why I had a hard time reading your instructions on this part. With my current regulator set up my pi will start up and then reset, and do that over and over. I drew a simple picture of my wiring, let me know if you see anything wrong with it.Interestingly if I just plug two wires directly from the power board to the pi without the regulator, it works fine. Or if I just plug the positive directly into the pi from the power board and leave the negative going through the regulator, it also works fine.So I'm convinced it's the way I have the positive circuit running through the regulator that's causing it to reset... but I have no ...see more »Hey, I've been trying to make this project too but I am stumped at the regulator step.
