  1. At least where I looked, there is no way to order this board.
    There is another, cheaper board that does the same thing that can be found on eBay/BangGood/Alibaba that is compatible with many more display panels, if you have the adapter.
    If there is a direct link to order this board, please reply. And DO NOT put the link to creotech.pl on there because I checked and you can't order anything from there other than industrial power supplies.

  2. Hey Tom. these aren't listed on Creotechs website anymore, and they don't respond to email. It seems these aren't made anymore. Would you, or someone you know happen to have one you'd part with? I'd really like to get my hands on one of these.

  3. i hope you can reply to this. but are there any adapters which performs the opposite of that device. from the phone itself connecting to any hdmi capable device even without the touch screen capabilities? i was thinking of making my broken screen lg g3 to an android box. thank you in advance.

  4. Thanks For This, i have a lg leon that got hard bricked and now i can rip the screen off and do that. i was think hooking the xbox one hdmi to it . since sometimes the tv is in use i can play through my phone

  5. I'm trying to find a full color higher resolution screen to hook to a small board that runs android, have you come across anything like this? I basically want to build a tiny smartphone like 2 inch x 1 inch with a 0.5 inch screen, anyone know if this is possible or where to get started? It's basically the opposite of this, I want to take an android or iphone board, and hook it to a tiny little half inch oled or lcd, with a decent resolution. Please let me know if you have any ideas!

  6. I am very new to all this stuff. I want to make a project with a raspberry and cell phone LCD. I was thinking about using a small raspberry pi zero (because it is the smallest) and a phone LCD for a display. I'm trying to make a small leather notebook about the size of a wallet have a built in display. I'd like to have the LCD display a calender where I can make events, the time and weather, possibly other things in the future. would I be able to do this project with a raspberry pi zero? or would I need something else? I don't really know how I am going to do this at all yet so all info would be great! thank you and awesome videos!
