Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

I may have missed something, why did you decide on this new panel? Something wrong with the *-03?

The same panel makes an appearance on the thread where he discusses the x320, so they used the mystery panel, at least. Still not sure what it is, though

Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

I'm pretty sure that's the one that kingkonglue used in the original x320, which is the one you used: LQ133M1JW03.

Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

Oh man, yours has much more room than mine does. I removed that white plastic and it's still glass on magnesium for the test fit. I had to remove all the clips to the bezel, and as a result, it no longer clips in on the sides. I'll find a hack to make it work, but it's not pretty.

Nice progress

That's just being gloriously absurd. At some point, you just buy a T420 and mod it with a fhd screen.

Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

I bent it outward, such that makes the footprint larger for the antenna. I had to break the core wire connection and resolder it, which is (I'm sure) where I messed up. With the new ones, sitting in the same location in my house, I'm getting a signal level of about -43 dBm. The originals, I believe ...

Hey, that's pretty cool. I'm betting the seller just put non-stock antennas in there, but you came out with the better deal.

Re: WIP DIY x320, what I learned so far

Does a 3G (possibly 4G?) connection sound like a workaround? My issue was that the antennas in the bezel, near the top, are too large. The solution for the antenna for the 3G/4G WLAN was easy, because I don't use them, so I simply removed the antenna block and put it aside. However, I want to keep ...

On the x220, what was your method of approaching the hulking mass of WiFi antennas? They're very much in the way; I suppose they could be replaced by slimmer ones, but I wonder if they can be bent flat without losing reception. If this was possible, they would just sit behind the screen. I simply re...

Any chance of cutting down the bezel, just like in the 51nb mods?
I don't have a 20x/30x model, but it's fairly thin plastic, so it should just require patience. I'm gonna be doing it by hand, since I have no CNC available. boutch already did one on a test bezel, earlier in this thread

You're probably right, I should just suck it up and buy another X220 instead of potentially frying my X220T.

it's still unclear if it is practically possible to transplant protective glass and digitizer from the stock LCD to the new one. At least for me, I'd trade digitizer functionality for 1080p any day. Not to mention, the modification that I've done to the LCD leaves it rather fragile. I don't know if...

It might be possible to flip the bottom pcb on the back instead of the bottom.
