Swapping ic chip, printing multi layer PCB, adding ports, etc.
Here I thought you wanted to jailbreak it or something to install Linux on it. I don't really know much about those tablets, though. For what you're asking, I would try to find a local shop that specializes in computer repair. That's really complicated stuff and you'd want to trust it to a professional.
I need to swap a third party usb c controller to a intel one for thunder bolt 3. Most gbatemp user is more than capable of installing Linux.
Yeah, I could easily install Linux or even MacOS. That's the easy bit. Not sure if you have to jailbreak these Surface Pros to do it, but I'm sure it's easy. Hardwiring new parts and boards, that's a whole 'nother story.
Pretty sure it is. Probably just as easy disabling Secure Boot in the UEFI/BIOS or something.
Is it? I had a Netbook with Windows Mobile, Secure Boot was already disabled on it. Guess it depends on the manufacturer. My experience with tablets has been that you either have to jailbreak it (some Win 8 and 10 devices) or unlock the bootloader (Android).
I'm pretty sure the main issue would be drivers, but don't quote me on that.
I don't think it is possible, but it's weird Microsoft didnt add the USB-C(3.1)/Thunderbolt 3. I found this:
Yup, especially on those tablet PCs. Good luck getting the touch screen and audio drivers to work.
So I take it you have a USB-C device? What is it, a phone? A harddrive? I'd have upgraded to it myself, but there just isn't a high demand for it, so I went with USB 3.0 for now.
A tablet with usb c port that does not support thunderbolt 3 standard.
Huh? WTF? Why not? *scratches head*
Don't quote me on this, because it's pure speculation on my part, but it may be that the CPU that the Surface uses doesn't have enough PCI lanes available to meet TB3 standards
pcie * 4 ssd, pcie * 4 for custom charger, and the rest for other ports, and only 12 lanes(and how do they even add a gpu on surface book)
You might be right, but I am actually using it as an example. I am getting something else with an actual usb c port.
