Epic 4G Touch Touchstone mod

Getting a Touchstone mod is a sort of smartphone rite of passage. If someone's going to take enough time and effort to hack Palm's inductive charger onto the phone, it's a sure sign it's a winner. We've previously seen it on the Epic 4G and EVO 4G, and such is the case with the Epic 4G Touch. Android Central Forums member darrenf has modded his E4GT to work with the Touchstone.

A couple of caveats, of course. This requires some fairly major surgey. And beacuse of the Epic 4G Touch's tight fit, the inductive coil is actually on the outside of the battery cover, so it'll need some cosmetic surgery as well. But, damn it, that looks pretty sweet.

Check out the excellent walkthrough and instructions at the link below.

Epic 4G Touch gets Touchstone mod


Looks great but a little too much body work for my interests. As this is just an electromagnet slapped on the back of the handset I am concerneded how it would affect the internal compass....

Yep. I picked up a Galaxy S2 on Friday. Notification light is important to me so I made sure it had one. Search the Android Market for "light flow" it's a great app to help customize the LED for notifications.

...and i was just wondering about customizing the notification light like i used to do on my BLACKBERRY a few years back. Thanks JANTER.

Arghh!! I want this for my Photon. Toushstone is one of the things that I really miss after the switch from webOS.

You can do it for ANY phone. See my tutorials on goodandevo.net and my youtube videos on the drinkwd40 channel. I've successfully modded an Evo 4g (hardwired), and modded via the USB port (which doesn't destroy the phone or from what I've seen any of its function, including the compass--but I understand why it should) for an Epic 4g, a LG Optimus C, and 2 EVO 3D's.
