    hac-emmc.png Nintendo says so itself on it's hardware. HAC-EMMC.

    I shall get started.

    Seriously though. This will make it extremely easy to backup and restore the flash memory.

    It's great because it allows adapters that won't require soldering.

    chinese tablet batteries.

    google "chinese tablet embedded battery"

    Also iirc there was a rumour about switch having a non removable battery.

    edit:



    it´s almost like dismantling a bomb

    There are 3 cables sticking out of the panel, which is strange since there should only be the screen and digitizer left. Maybe the 4-pin is for backlight?

    Hi,

    I'm the tech guy who took apart this console (the pictures above are from the company where I work)

    Yes, the battery is very easy to remove, I only used a small plastic spudger and it comes off immediately.

    The "air vents" at the bottom are used to dissipate the heat and for speakers

    There's three flex cables :

    - One is for the digitizer (the big one located at the top left of the motherboard)
    - The second located in the center is used for the LCD
    - The third below is the backlight flex

    You can take apart and remove digitizer (we did not do it because of a lack of time).

    The digitizer is not "fused" with the LCD screen like iPhones/Samsung etc devices :)

    Feel free for questions,

    Louis

    It isn't fused huh. Explains why it looks far apart from the glass.
    That kinda sucks but I guess the screen is expected to be average.

    Display manufacturer is confirmed to be Jdisplay only, who clearly said that display and digitizer is one, combined using some new technology. There shouldnt be a removable digitizer. Can you maybe take a picture of the digitizer and serial codes underneath it? Im really interested if they went back and used the same supplier as they did for decades now (with ds, 3ds, wiiu ) :o

    Also AFAIK and researched, iPhone digitizer is not fused with the display they just use adhesive and stick it to the displays frame. So two seperate manufacturers: one for display (in case of 6s for example, mainly Jdisplay) and one for digitizer (a taiwanese firm i forgot the name of.)

    Also thank you for a wonderful job and great high quality pictures! (unlike those trash pics of chinese teardown)

    @Duo8
    Screen looks absolutely fantastic, what are you talking about :huh:

    @L-Sosav

    Can you confirm if the screen is glass or plastic?

    That's generally what fused refers to.

    Just need someone to take off the nand chip so that we can find soldier points for hardmod. Too bad we need a switch to sacrifice.

    Edit: love the removable nand tho

    That's not a bad thing, it's actually a very good thing because it means if you break the glass you only need to replace the digitizer and not the entire LCD, which is much cheaper.

    It will be extremely easy to figure out the pinouts. If I physically had a switch then I could figure it out in minutes.

    I hate to sound like a dink, but the flash memory is not a NAND memory, instead it is an eMMC, and there is a big difference on the technical level. In short, NANDs require a lot more pins for data and addressing and they are required, eMMC does not have nearly as many pins and some can be excluded from use if needed but will result in slower transfer speed.

    Now that you know a slight bit about the difference, please try to use the correct terminology when discussing the flash memory.

    The only reason why it bugs me is when the Wii U first came out, the manager at a gamestop kept telling customers that the Wii U's "hard drive" was 32gb. I had to correct the idiot because the customers were asking if they can upgrade the hard drive like the PS3/4 and XBox's. Correct terminology can make a difference for people to understand things correctly.
