Finally, I have succeeding in producing my own variation on the MintyBoost.  I found inspiration on this post (http://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=18225) on the Adafruit forums.  It looks like a stick of gum, and I like it, because it’s single-sided, and because it looked like it would be pretty easy to make at home with my toner transfer setup.  I call it the MintStick, because sometimes I don’t like to spend a lot of time trying to come up with good names for things.  It’s version 3.0 to indicate compatibility with the MintyBoost 3.0 (since it ought to support the same devices).

  1. Just had the thought:
    maybe the problem with Sony Reader is, that these require a USB handshake?
