Marcin, > I unsoldered plastic antenna, but there is only WiFi. > Seems that RF transceiver is under metal shield. > I just received second piece of Sciphone and uploaded new pictures > with descriptions on Wiki: I very much enjoyed reading your Sciphone G2 news and it motivated me to jump in and try to help :-) So it turns out a good friend of mine is Vice President of the company that made the Sciphone G2 - it's a small world after all. I wrote up what I found so far http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Sciphone_Dream_G2 The G2 was discontinued about a year ago, but over 200,000 were made so we should be able to find some still. He donated the absolute last 2 phones we could find in his office to the OsmocomBB project, a normal black one as well as a prototype red one. He also donated another 9 boards to OsmocomBB, I took this picture http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/File:Nine_Sciphone_G2_boards.jpg They are reworked/fixed, but _should_ work (note that 3 are without Wi-Fi). Now my question: For those 9 boards, what are the most important missing pieces so they can become useful for the OsmocomBB project? I guess a charger/USB cable would be nice (it's not a standard plug). What else? LCM? Maybe not so important? How about antennas? speaker/buzzer? If I just send these 9 boards to Harald the way they are on the picture, is that useful? Or should I try to find some more parts? I'm most concerned about the antenna, not sure whether this is easy to source/find. Separately, I will try to take pictures of the individual PCB layers, using a V3.1 PCB. I should have them by the end of the week. I am also trying to get the schematics, maybe BOM or other helpful data, but I'm not so sure on those, maybe they cannot find them anymore even if they would like to give them to us. Don't hold your breadth on those. Bottom line: 2 full G2 + 9 PCBA donated to OsmocomBB, PCBA pictures uploaded, PCB layer pictures coming. Schematics maybe. Wolfgang
