  • Kindle Fire Teardown

    Do any of you know if removing the whole Jorjin WG7310 WLAN/BT/FM Combo Module from the circuit board would cause any problems for the rest of the device?

    .

    The reason I ask is I heat gunned it off but I may have taken something extra off.

    .

    The Fire still "works" as in it turns on and I can run apps. What doesn't work is the Setting>Device menu. When I try to access it, the Fire locks up and I have hard reset it. I also can't get it to mount as a removable drive to my laptop. When I connect the USB cable the Fire looks like it mounts and the "eject hardware" shows a drive letter but under explorer there is no drive letter. When connected via USB the Fire has an orange spinning circle where the disconnect button use to be.

    .

    So do you think removing the Jorjin Module did all this or do you think I might have removed something extra in the process?

    PS. I have my reasons for wanting to remove the wireless feature..
