I went to order a couple Overo Waterís, but the Gumstix website says ďNow shipping version R2173Ē

Yet, the last time I ordered a Overo Fire I received revision R2277 (the camera connector in the new location)

This wouldnít be a problem if I wasnít using the Camera connector, and my baseboard design uses the new location. †I havenít finished the design , but Iím just about to. †In fact the only reason I have to order new ones is because of this change. The old ones will work with my development test board (I designed that before the change), and the new ones will work with the new baseboard.

Inconvenient, but certainly not the first time Iíve had this with a COM, and certainly not the last. What is irritating is I canít get away from it. The uncertainty of what Iíll get, and the uncertainty in the electrical connection of the camera connector.

As an aside I have about 10 or 15 camera flex cables from gumstix that donít work? Can I ship those back? I donít care about getting a refund. I just want gumstix to look at the cable for possible mechanical issues (I donít think they actually meet the connector spec). On my new baseboard I wonít have to remove/insert the flex cable when I need to move things around so hopefully I wonít have such a ridiculous collection of bad flex cables in the future.
