Awesome!

Two questions if i may:

Is the 5.0 Wifi the exact same as the 5.0 US version?

It looks like the connector snaps onto the motherboard. How does it connect to the battery - is there hooks or straight solder??

Is there any tricks or tools needed to pry open the back cover?

I've done the same to mine. You need to remove the two small screws by the micro-usb port, then use a safe pry tool to pry open the case.

I have a US Version, and my battery was hooked on, but easy to remove. As far as I know the battery is uniquely shaped on this device, but i have yet to see a galaxy note battery for myself.
