Welcome everyone to my first instructable!
I have had this burning desire to get my new Epic to inductively charge.... I have scoured the web and have found nothing... So I figured I had insurance and the worst that could happen is I would have a fancy paperweight... :D
But lets get to it.
Items that will be needed are:
One Soldering Iron with a very small tip
One Palm touchstone charging kit
speaker coil wire
Small Philips screwdriver
Small standard screwdriver or dental pick
Step 1: The Teardown
This is a simple step.... Tear it down!!! :D
There are 7 screws on the back of the phone. Take them out and then start lifting the rear cover off. (Don't forget to take the SD card out) There are no hidden screws or any void stickers. I found this is where a small dental pick or small standard screwdriver works wonders!
After you have the back cover off there are two ribbon cables that connect the screen, keyboard, and front speakers. Just simply lift them off from the side opposite to the cable. Now the motherboard should lift right out of the case.
Step 2: The Modification
Okay. So now you have a motherboard and empty shell in your hands.
On the mother board the camera circuit simply attaches the same way the ribbon cables do. Just pull it off of the motherboard. I didn't remove the audio connector but to remove it simply pull up on the black part opposite to the insertion point.
At this point you can either lay the board on a static mat or grab your favorite pair of second hands and get busy.... :D
