Is it possible to apply Thermal Paste?
I saw some thermal pads on the N8's mid-plane. Now my phone will auto-restart and continue restart when the phone is in warm environment but it will be all right if getting it directly under an aircond. So, I was thinking will apply thermal paste helps this. Thanks.
Sounds like that'd work, there's a similar issue with older HP laptops which only have thermal pads and then overheat and continually restart- the solution is to apply thermal paste. The thermal pads alone aren't good enough for keeping it cool, so thermal paste will help you out there. You can get some thermal paste here, and here's a guide for installing it.
