This is a rather difficult mod involving soldering directly to an expensive phone and using very small surface mount components. This tutorial assumes moderate soldering skills and the ability to read schematic diagrams. I take no responsibility for broken phones, burned fingers, popped eyeballs, wasted money, bar fights, lost time, gained time, pissed off girlfriends, pissed off parents, or your death... alone at your mom's house.
1 NPN transistor
1 infared phototransistor
1 infared led
small gauge wire
Step 1: Test the components
Step 2: Open the case
Step 3: Remove the transciever cover
Step 4: Make room for the new sensor
Step 5: Mount the sensor and find a power source.
Step 7: Wire up the circuit.
Step 9: Put a hole in the outer casing.
Step 10: Put the palm back together (except for the antenna)
Step 11: Test it and make sure you didn't screw up.
Step 12: Mischief
If you're broke, you can use Omniremote 1.171, as it's no longer supported by it's developer. (but it's a learning remote, so it needs training)
If you're not broke, i highly recommend novii remote as it comes with many codes for many devices.
