The bottom of my EZb V4 looks different slightly from the video I watched here for adding a 3.5mm jack.
The ground hole is the same but there is only one hole with the gold colored surround in the area where I would think the power wire goes but Just want to make sure because it is slightly different from the video. Is this the spot where I would solder too?
I just got my V4 in January 2016.
Thanks for the help

Which pads you use depend on whether you are going straight to a speaker (can only drive a pretty small one without distortion) or going to an amplifier (want to use the line level, not speaker outputs to prevent distortion).
I watched the video on how to do it. But like I said in my post. Where he attaches the wires look slightly different than my board.
From the looks of the tutorial you sent I think I found my answer. It appears the gold surround on my board is where I am looking to attach the wire.
my jack has 3 connections (left, Right, Common)
The tutorial only shows a ground wire and one wire in the via.
Where does the ground wire go on the 3 prong jack? And how am I suppose to get left and right when there is only 1 wire? Do I need to jumper the prongs?
When i mentioned where to connect the GND - that can be the "black" or "gnd" at the battery, or the power pin of the EZ-B.
GND is also called "Common". This is because all devices can have different Positive Voltage, but they all must share a common ground. For example, in your house, ever breaker/fuse for every plugin is different - but the ground is the same. It's a common ground because everything needs that common ground. The earth is pretty much the biggest common ground you can find
Appreciate you explaining it in a simple manner.
