Default My HD2 hardware mod- Wireless charing



I used a pixi charging back case (5.99usd) and touchstone charging base (9.99usd) to create this mod. You can find them on clearance at radioshack!

Can be made for other devices: ipods, iphones, bluetooth headset, etc...

Comment plz.

sure interesting, and most valuable as a proof-of-concept realization, even if I'de never go out with a setup like that

DONATE... not money!! 250MB are ok you won't spend a penny, and instead get 2.25GB for yourself

Hey, why do you use this microUSB port?
There's one marvelous thing about our HD2 : the dual-backplate setup

-> Use the golden plated contacts right next to the sim card.
They're used for the "old/weird" special car back-plate in order to make contact via the magnetic holder (aka the "original" car kit)

This way u'll be able to mod a plastic back plate with all the mechanism integrated, you just have to "make" two pins (and understand how the third middle one works) that connects to the HD2 motherboard

Hope that helps But i'm sure our HD2 will be the only one who will survive the wireless charging mod without too much trouble vs unibody etc

I tried doing something like this a little while back, the connectors next to the sim card can be used for charging which would make the whole thing much nicer and easier, it worked good, but the HD2 metal door blocked the signal so it would not charge, so I used it with a sillicon case on top, it was good but not the best, then I tried to hard wire it inside, opened the HD2, it got few dust specs behind the LCD from opening, I tried blowing them away and the whole screen died, well it was a sad story which eventually ended up on ebay, and I had to get a different one I WILL NOT TRY THIS AGAIN, i hope.

The car kit's replacement back is also metal. But I will look into those 3 pins in back. Anyone know what they do exactly?

they activate the navi-panel and charge your phone at the same time. Do they have the navi-panel for the TMOUS version? I'm not really sure, but yea, if you're able to use the 3 pins inside, then it'll free up your micro usb connector.
