Quick question. How do you remove and install display? Do you need to heat it up for glue to let go?

Ho Arie,

Interesting guide!

One of the main bug of the p6000 is the missing standard OTG capability. The OTG works only is the USB device is externally powered. Is it possible for you to check this capability and understand if it's an HW (missing USB power connection) or SW problem? Thank you!
