Removing the back and putting in a microSD - video!

14 posts in this topic

So, obviously, the first thing you do with a brand new device is to remove the non-removable back and have a poke around inside right?

That's what I did, and found the microSD slot. Sadly the OS isn't picking it up yet, but when we have root hopefully we can make progress in that regard. :D

What's wrong with the people who made this...

If you put a micro-sd slot in the phone, why hide it??

have you tried another card?

back in the original blade it would just not accept a number of microsd cards. but most would work fine....

It looks like a last minute decision to remove the microSD slot but the boards were already made up with the slot. Might not even be connected up.

I hope it's possible to get this to work though, as I find this device very intriguing :D

Is that battery removable? It looks like it is a pretty standard slot in concept, but just curious if it is held down in anyway or has any weird ribbons connecting it to the phone?

Needless; the fact you have to unscrew the back cover could make development a pain when you think about all those times you have had to 'pull' the battery due to boot loops or crashes of some sort..

I believe you pull the SIM holder out and use your thumb nail to gently prise of the back.

After a couple of failed attempts, I got the back off by starting at the headphone jack. Couldn't start at the sim slot, felt like I was damaging it.
