Bus Pirate V4 LCD adapter

Why do this? At the time of this writing Dangerous Prototypes had not developed a new LCD adapter for the Bus Pirate V4 and I needed one for a project. So why not modify the existing V3 model. I unsoldered the existing header from the Bus Pirate LCD Adapter and wired a 10 pin header cable to the LCD Adapter

Connections are as follows:

Bus Pirate V4 -> Bus Pirate LCD Adapter
1 3
2 4
3 1
4 2
5 5
8 7
11 8
12 10

After soldiering the header cable to the LCD adapter you should end up with something like this:

Connect it to your Bus Pirate V4:

That's it! Enjoy!
