Graham, Thanks a lot for your reply!
At first I tried everything connected to the 3.3V but the screen seems very dim. I saw some post here saying it was ok to plug it to the 5V (can't recall which post tho..) so this is what I did.. didn't changes anything to me.. but, fortunately it didn't damage the TFT or any of it's components.. I guess i'm lucky on this one!!
My problem was in the HW_ARM_define.h
The example I had came with CTE_DUE_SHIELD 1 configuration already uncommented. Therefore, the connection reqmts in the main PDF file were waived and the connection I made were incorrect.
I did exactly how you posted In the JPG but I still experienced some random behavior on the screen.. 1/3rd of the screen updated but didn't clean out and pictorially, the forms were incomplete..
This happened because (As the picture shown) there isn't supposed to be a 10K ohms resistor on the RD connection..
Once I removed that resistor, everything works like a charm!!!
Thanks again for your support!
