Modded a Galaxy Nexus with Touchstone charging

by acaplinger

My Problem

I loved my Palm Pre's ability to charge wirelessly via a Palm Touchstone, and wanted the same ability with my new Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

My Fix

Thanks to the pictures on iFixit's breakdown of the Galaxy Nexus and to the guitar picks, it was very easy to open my device without damaging it to accomplish the mod. I also followed the instructions written by AndroidCentral.com forum member Ohiomoto.

My Advice

Go slow. I ended up not needing the Plastic Opening Tools or the Spudger for this project, but I'm glad to have them in my toolbox.
