I must assume that you were talking about making the 5V supply connection to the 5V Pin instead of the dc power jack and I further assume that the 5V Pin does not use the integrated regulator?Is this correct?
http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm1117-n.pdfSee section 4. 1N4002 from 5V to Vin.Has been discussed in the forum as well.Another manufacturer's data sheet went into it further.
