Maybe this is a dumb question. My goal is to charge and program the Teensy 4.1 through the same signal path as is used "out-the-box". Can I simply wire a microUSB-B cable's D+, D-, GND, and 5V lines to the correponding pins beneath the connector once I remove it?I'm contemplating doing something similar with a T4.1 for an enclosure design with very limited space. I'd like for programming and power to be fed through this stock/primary micro USB connection.
Am I okay to desolder the Teensy's micro USB connector, cut a micro usb cable open, and solder GND, 5V, D+, and D- to the corresponding pins where the connector had been attached?
I ask because the D+ and D- have been wired to a T4.1 in this manner here, and I'm looking to solder all 4 wires as Paul explained in post #1.
I've spliced a Powerboost 1000C by Adafruit into the USB cable, leaving data lines intact. This has worked in the past, but looking to save space in this enclosure.
