vinas1 has just released some instructions on how you could get the wireless charging mod to work on the Tmobile Note II version.
Check it out here
Big Thanks to m055 who has posted a video guide on Youtube check it out from here
I've decided to go ahead and do the mod for the wireless charging as i've seen a few threads tempting me.
What you need is:
- Palm Touchstone £5.24 (Amazon UK)
- Palm Pre Touchstone case £3.49 (eBay)
- Electrical Tape
- Copper foil tape [thanks rj3005]
- Solder Iron & Solder
This all cost me under £10 excluding the solder iron. You might find it cheaper shopping around.
- I first took the induction coil out of the Palm Pre case carefully.
!!! Its very important that you peel the silver sticker off carefully and not cause any sharp bends which could cause cracking. You need this silver sticker to stay intact for the whole operation to work!!!
The top pin is positive and bottom is negative as shown in the picture, this is also the same on the note the top pin being positive and bottom negative.
- I placed the coil in the center of the Note battery case I then placed the silver sticker over the coil as it was on the Palm Pre (this is very important that you place the silver sticker back over the coil as without it the induction doesn't seem to work.)
- I then checked where the charging pins on the note meets with the case and marked it with a pen to indicate where the
wirescopper tape would have to be.
- Using copper tape, I stuck two tracks going from the charging circuit to the charging pins positions, make sure you leave enough copper track to fold the tape twice over itself to create a spring going against the charging pins.
- Solder the track to the charging circuit by tinning the end of the copper track and soldering it to charging circuit contacts, then cut electrical tape to size and place it over the copper track. After place the original insulation cover over the coil with the magnets.
- I placed the battery cover over the Palm Touchstone dock and checked the voltage from the copper track with a meter (should be 5.6V any less means you have left the silver foil off or not placed it correctly) to check everything is working and the polarity is correct.
- I placed it back on my phone and there you go, I now have wireless charging.
NFC works and magnets do not affect the phone testing the S Pen and Compass seem to operate all good.
List of successful mods completed:
- nm8 also see this (impressive)

German tutorial with good pictures of the Pre and Pixi casing(thanks Frank2)
EDIT: Measurements I've taken
Output Voltage 4.8V (5.6V disconnected)
Output Amps 0.42A
EDIT: Added pictures of the Galaxy Note on the dock in portrait & landscape
EDIT: I've now swapped my wires over to copper tape
EDIT: nm8 has just posted a solder less alternative [MOD] Note 2 Wireless Charging [Origami style][No Solder]
You can use the Palm Pixi case to do this mod but its very important that you double check the polarity to the charging pins. Do not connect straight to the charging pins until your sure which pins are positive and negative, you could cause damage to your phone Info Regarding the Pixi
