Wireless Charging Mod for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note II
Although Palm (later HP) devices were the first major smartphones to introduce wireless charging, it has recently become quite the rage—especially since Nokia decided to bring it to their latest Windows Phone 8 handsets. Our developers here at XDA have been busy with it as well, bringing it to the Samsung Galaxy S III and Sony Xperia Arc. Just few days back, we featured a wireless charging mod for the international Galaxy Note II GT-N7100. Now, the T-Mobile variant of the Note II joins the list.
XDA Senior Member vinas1 has built upon the work done by Senior Member Ryan_G on the international Note II mod, and successful made the modifications necessary for making it work on the T-Mo version. It isn’t too practical at present because one of the wires used in the mod hangs out of the USB port. However, it’s a work in progress, and vinas1 is working on a solution for this soon.
To learn how to apply this hardware mod to your device and to follow up on the developments, head over to the forum thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
