Anyone has the right to build this board. That in no way infers that they
know how to build it or even can support it. All the parts look in the
right place, but it is not a Rev B.Looks more like a Rev C. Rev B was built
using the AM3359 processor. It has the BeagleBone logo, but not the .org
name, so not sure where they got the logos. So, I would advise buying
boards from someone who knows what they are talking about, not just some
Pads for the power jack are still there. Solder wires into it to power the
board. It might even power up once.
You cannot power a board via a GPIO pin, at least not for more than 5-6
seconds depending how big the flames are and how much smoke there is.
