Doh, I did not notice that the two pages are the same icon_eek.gif

Looks like the 4th connection is for a 3.8v regulated power connection and yes, for the best electrical connection the wires are soldered to the springs, then for extra strength epoxy or hot glued into place.

Cheers

Nick.

You can download the firmware update here.

 

I believe the screw is the same as used to install expansion cards in a PC.
