Hehe, it was in all seriousness a Joke. 100% on purpose. As I've said before I have some experience with these soldering thingies.

You need to add a little more rosin core solder. There is about this much - space between contacts. You have to take the whole phone apart to be able to get the front keyboard out. There is a sticker over one of the back screws , but not sure if its a warranty sticker. After doing the mod im sure you won't have to worry about the warranty because new l.e.ds will void it.

Looks great. Reminds me of my old Nextel modding days.

Re: My touch pro mod - L.E.Ds

This might not work, but I remember reading a long time ago on how to MOD LED lighting without soldering. Basically, you took some plastic that was the color that you wanted and put it on top of the LED. I don't know if there is enough space in there to do that but it might help...also, if it works, you could take it out if you needed to take it back for an exchange.

Perhaps taking a sharpie of the desired color might also do it.

Again, IDK if that will work, but it was in a tut. that I saw a long time ago.

Re: My touch pro mod - L.E.Ds

That looks amazing - and is how it should have been originally... at least the send and end lights.

I'd love to do this, but I'm on my 4th TP now and the hardware keyboard just stopped working on this one too, so it has to go back. I just have horrible luck with these things, doing anything to void the warranty that isn't easily reversed is a bit like throwing out insurance and condemning myself to buying a new TP in about a month.

Re: My touch pro mod - L.E.Ds

Wow, amazing job. If I may toot my own horn for a moment, I am pretty damned skilled at soldering (i work with 0402 sized SMT stuff on a regular basis... resistors are basically the size of 3 grains of sand), but I am just far too nervous for this sort of thing... voiding my warranty and insurance and all just for some colors? gah, almost seems worth it. keyword being "almost". if you break those surface mount ribbon cables, you're pretty much screwed.

again, great job man.

Re: My touch pro mod - L.E.Ds
