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.

Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
