Re: [MOD] T-Mobile Note 2 wireless charging mod
Which basically sucks because they crippled our variation when wireless charging by Samsung, but of course it wasn't listed by T-Mobile as capable.

Another great question is can we use the Nexus 4 orb with a QI receiver and a couple thin magnets (solder a wire from the board to the gold contact of course).

-edit- ordered 2 1000mah QI receivers and 2 GN4 charging pods. I won't get my QI receivers for about a month though from China

where did you order the QI pads? do they fit under the stock battery door without making things look ridiculous?

Replacement board option
Hey everyone, I continued trying to solder a wire to the connection on the USB board and due to my inexperience and foolishness I ended up shorting something and it kept sparking (thankfully I had the USB board separate from the phone) so I don't trust the USB board anymore. I looked extensively online for a T-Mobile specific replacement and couldn't find one but found an almost identical one for the N7105 on eBay. I decided to order it to try out and it just arrived. I eagerly tore my phone apart and installed it and BAM the phone starts up and charging works great. This obviously doesn't help with wireless charging but if something happens to the board it's nice to have a replacement option.

It took about 9 days to arrive to me in California. Here's the link if anyone is interested:

eBay... Check the accessories thread on wireless charging. You'll still need to solder the wire on any T-Mobile Note2, but qi charging does work.

I'm pretty sure judging by that pop up and his battery cover that he has an n7100, not t889...

The linked thread is in the N7100 forum, so he's not using our device.

Hi all sorry I didn't mean to mislead y'all. You should be able to use powermat instead of palm.

So it looks like there are plenty of Qi pads out there for the N7100 variant of the Note 2. Who in here has got that working? Seems like it would just be the same thing with different tech.
