Since it almost impossible to find a PDMI Port, I retrofited a MicroUSB port.

I even contracted FOXXCON, got a reply contract DELL for replacement part.

I have Charging and Data + / - (Detected by PC) working fine.

Only Issue is that the device shows it's not charging when Power ON and connected to PC (Hardware Charging LED is lit).
-Maybe this is Normal??
It does show charging when power on and connected to Charging Adapter.

I will post pictures when I get home today.

PDMI connector to mini usb connector
Hello man. My name is Mario. I come from Italy. I'm a psychologist,but on the spare time I like to play with linux & mobile & tablet & technology in general. I was searching for a OTG adapter that was able to recharge my nexus 10 and at the same time that accepts an external sd card and someone has suggests this to me :

eKit 4 in 1 Data Sync Connection Kit For Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 & Note 10.1

you can read the full story here :

http://android.stackexchange.com/que...-the-same-time

the problem is that I haven't read very well what he says and I haven't understood that it is not good for the nexus 10. For this reason I have tried to search a way to convert the PDMI connector to a mini usb connector and I have found this thread. I would like to ask you if I can make the same thing that you have done and if you can tell me which electric modification I have to make to the board of this connector to convert it as a mini usb connector. Thanks.
