Hello from Greece!
I bought the Rotoshield (SMD soldered) and now I'm trying to make it work.
I prepared the board and connected it to Arduino.
I uploaded to Arduino the "stepper" and "show off" examples from here but nothing happens.. Even the leds of the rotoshield don't turn on..
What is your advice?

Hello !

Did you used external power supply for motors (M+ screw terminal or ATX and solder jumper on)
If the leds are not turning on, external power supply for motors missing could be the root cause.

Maybe you can send picture of your assembly ?

Thanks for the fast response!
I finally made it work! It was the thing you mentioned about the external power supply.
Now I'm experimenting with some examples i found at snootlab!
