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..
