inductive coil with PIX WHOO HOO!!!!!!
The first thing i did was i went to radio shack and i found a palm pre back on clearence for $.97 SCORE!!!
following a website where they did a "non solder" mod and it doesnt void the warrenty ^_^ so i took the sticker off the back of the door showing the inductive coil
if i was intellegent enough i would of taken the sticker with the metal discs and placed them on my battery door but unfortunally i was not that smart.
so heres the coil all by its lonesome. Moving on, ok now i have taken apart my phone (you can find all the screw holes and they are all out in the open
where my screw driver tip is are little notches are the best areas for prying off the back
(that way you wont damage the chrome border) Now also make sure that you have purchased some copper foil. around here in the midwest i found it at my local hobby lobby in the section dealing with stained glass for around 7 bucks (that coil holding up the scissors and the back panel of my phone. So now that i have everything exposed we need to only worry about the place where the battery meets the main board
. Unfortunately i didn't take a pic here but if you look at the battery you will see that the other leads are the main terminals for the battery, biased upon the picture the negative is on the left while the positive is on the right. My screw driver as seen here
is the negitive terminal. So what i did was i place some of the copper foil over the negitive side of the termiman (sticky side down so that it stays in place and folded over the terminal)
and i did the same thing for the positive.
After i did that i placed the back, back on and but be careful because placing it back on is not nearly as easy as getting it off.
This here is the top of the back of the device. Make sure that you place these (as shown by the tip of my screw driver) in first and the rest will just snap on. Now here
] i folded the sticky sides together so that they wont stick to anything and they cover my battery. That way when i place my back with the coil taped into place they will make contact. Now moving to the backcover.......i aligned the coils terminals with the battery terminals and grabbed some good ol'fashioned electrical tape and taped that bad boy on to the battery cover
then i ran the copper tape (sticky side facing the cover) and created "trace patterns for the contacts
with more electrical tape to secure everything and i placed it all together
turned it on and made sure that it worked...
. HURRAYYYY!!!!!!! ahem....anyways i was able to snap everything back together
and it's not much thicker then before but ya can feel the coil. Now for an added touch today i was looking around @play.google.com and found and NFC app called "NFC RE-TAG" http://goo.gl/Q4GKL
which allows you to re tag any nfc so i opted for the free version. My kids have a videogame called Skylanders
for the wii (don't flame me), and pc. For those of you whom don't know what that is, it's a game that used NFC figurines that have special powers and you place them on a NFC reader called a "power portal". I was able to read the tags with the induction coil in place so there yall go the induction coil does not interfere with the NFC coil
