I have build an NFC Chip into my Computer to test the possibilities of NFC with my One X. So I thought, could it be that the One S also has an NFC Chip but disabled it so that the One X has an benefit against his little brother. Than I tried to port the NFC Drivers from the One X to the S and it works very well, but you can't disable it and there is no Android Beam yet. I try to cook an NFC enabled, RUU based Rom with working Android Beam. Download Link: Is coming soon!

Quoted from the video... so the One S is missing drivers and all functionality?

If this is true about NFC someone should try hitting up leedroid on Twitter he's quite good at porting things over and can give it a shot if he would like to atleast bring it to his attention

Yup David111jr did have this up a few days ago....but the title of his thread didnt help to entice people to read When i showed this to a few other people, it was mentioned that it might be the cleaver use of Chrome to Phone. It would be awesome if it turned out to be true, but since people like to play nice tricks like this, we will have to wait and see. As for Leedroid, looking through his thread it looks like he might be busy with home things (after all awesome devs have home lives too ) . Hopefully a dev can either debunk or reproduce it. I will keep my fingers crossed for sure!!

All I saw was a video of a device opening up Google+ when it was near the tech tiles. Pretty sure that can be scripted pretty easily.

All teardowns I have seen thus far, eg. the directfix one, really just show how to replace the display so guess we have to wait till I slam a door on mine or something...

It's too bad it's impossible to find teardown pics for our phone. I thought I found some once before but I couldn't right now in a quick search. A company called NXP makes the NFC chips in the latest round of Android phones. Since it is a separate chip and not just another feature in something like the wireless combo chip where they have a bunch of features (the chip in or phone can do FM RX / TX) and simply don't turn them on I'm doubtful.

But if anyone can find pictures of our phones mainboard just look for a chip with NXP on it and the mystery is over.
