Step 5: cut the hard drive

remove the tip plate on the hard disk to reveal all the components inside.

to mount the ram strongly to the drive, I had to make a slot using an angle grinder. The location of the slot may vary with your phone. In the picture, I show you where I cut in red. The cut will also cut through the circuit board.

<p>hey, do you know where i can get one of these but i just need to solder some components in ( i need it of my product desiign gcse)</p>
Great instructable. Good enough that I made my own for my iPhone, with all parts from macs! Yours does a good job keeping things low profile, but the iPhone doesn't do landscape plugged in very well. Since I can't take a picture AND have the phone in place I had to sub in an old iPod touch.
I'm really tempted to make this dock for my new S2. It would be a major help to know what the App is for the timer!
u sir are a genius! haha looks awesome! i'm totally going to do this! How hard would it be to do SATA you think
&quot;insert ram to hard drive&quot; &lt;-- made me laugh... thank you
looks nice! ill be sure to try this one! <br>
nice but solder wires on 3.5 mm jack for speaker and put charger so you can charge phone
Thanks. <br><br>yeah, the 3.5mm is soldered, it is routed to the slave/master pins and I made a female header to 3.5mm female plug. I did it this way to make the hard drive i/o look unmodified. <br><br>If you meant actually adding speakers to the dock, then, no because I won't be using it (because it is made for the office I work at and they probably won't like me playing music through loudspeaker there).
I think thats what he had planned, also look on xda about how to trigger you phone into going into dock mode. Its an extremely simple circuit.
