I plan to make a small cluster of Orange Pi Zero boards. Due to strict space requirements the design necessitates only one cable per board, which means power must go over the Ethernet cable. I already have a PoE switch I will use.
I intend on purchasing active PoE splitters, cracking them open and rewiring them so that the 5v is sent over the Ethernet cable instead of the USB cable.
If I understand the Q&A correctly, the only modification I need to make to the board is the 'Option 1' method, simply bridge the gap between pads R29 and R358.
Has anyone here tried this?
