I asked this question in the questions thread, but it got overlooked. I’m copying and pasting my comment here:
I just picked up a Qanba Q4 after using a custom TE-S stick for a couple of months. I plan on modding this one and had a question. I’m a minimalist, so I plan on ordering a plain black plexiglass cover with only the first 6 buttons. I’d like to relocate the start button.
I was wondering if I could rewire the stick so that the SELECT button on the top-front pnale would be the start button instead (and just not have a select button). Is this possible? If not, I might dremel another 24mm hole near the top and place the start button there, similar to the TE-S.
I opened the stick up, and there is only one wire running from the main PCB to the SELECT/MODE/TURBO etc PCB labelled select. If I remove that wire and replace it with the START wire (not its ground), would that work?
Any suggestions or thoughts? Is there any reason I would need that SELECT/BACK button?
