SD Card Errors
I have the same sd card problem on HTC incredible S for months. I remember seeing someone suggest lifting the two pins up a bit at the back of the phone. I tried all four pins that I can see that but still not successful. Before S-off and after S-off, also see the issue.Tried different ROMS, VivoKat, Revolution-HD, also not successful. Flashed my radio to the current version, also see the same issue.
If I do not closed the back cover of the phone, it did not removed the sd card, though the signal strength for the radio drops drastically.
What are the pins at the back of the phone meant for? When we put on the back cover, aren't we shorting (1) shorting the pins at the side of the rear camera, (2) shorting the pins at the bottom near the sd card. Or should they be shorted?
What is the function of the phone back cover? Ground Plane? Attenna and/or sd card on/off switch? Is there something we need to do to the back cover for the sd card to function properly? Or is it shorting the SD card that forces it to eject? Should we snip away the plastic metalized pins at the back and solder a short wire shorting the pins? Maybe one pin must touch the back cover while the other one should not?
At this moment, I still cannot differentiate whether it is a hardware/software/firmware issue. Any help is appreciated.
