Well I think it should work out,
The member who ports something post often how’s to use in his thread, but it’s good to have another place to put these also in , so the Peaple don’t have to search for the original thread just for Savestate shortcuts

What is wrong when the green LED light up on the LID when I put a charging cable in the Pyra whyle it’s shut down?

And what is the Pyra really worth? I mean it’s cost me 760 €, but also multiple 2 months [emoji3481] cycles of waiting time, so if I lost this thing it’s shure a bit lost..
I carry it in my pocket and it’s shows a bit of tear but not that much as the Pandora would..

Plugging in a charging cable can turn on the Pyra if it was completely powered down (done by Palmas power controller chip). This lights up the green led until the OMAP turns on the display.
I am not sure if this auto-poweron can be disabled by software (some control bits of the Palmas and if e.g. U-Boot would need some code for this).

If U-Boot could detect this situation, it could boot an alternate system that goes into a low-power mode (turn off display or peripherals), indicates the level of charge somehow (e.g. with LEDs, or on-screen after a button press) and upon pressing the power button, reboots into the real OS.
Most Android phones do the same, I think. The Nokia N900 did something similar after 'shutting down', because it didn't actually have a way to shut down fully.

^^ Just run the Emulator again and close it..

The sheat of paper you have to put behind your batterie to prevent it from lose contact some times, how big should this be?
I have a sheat from a Notebook which i folded once in half so its fit in the batterie compartment, but it was a bit too long, so i folded the shorter side also..
Could it be its too big now? Its fits in the Batterie Compartment and i got the Door closed, but i think it might be too big..

In my experience with packing out the battery compartment in my Pandora, I used the technique of packing it sufficiently that the system wouldn't reset when I shook it, but wasn't any thicker. I gather with the Pyra you don't also need to pack out the sides to stop it moving laterally, so that's an improvement already.
