    Decided it was time to take a peek into the ElitePad 1000 G2. It's fairly simple to open. You will need a glass pane suction cup device to open it. And a small electronics Philips screwdriver.

    Just follow the directions in the Service Manual :

    HP recommends their $300 tool platform to open it. Pfft. All you need is the mechanical suction cup. You can find them on eBay for under $10 each. Mine is a professionl grade capable of lifting 110 Lbs. A medium duty (~50Lbs) suction cup will suffice.

    Here's the tool:

    • Here's the Wifi card on the right side:

    • Here's the empty WWAN slot (under the NFC Antenna).
      If you don't have a model with WWAN already installed, then you will need to not only buy a WWAN but also the antenna kit as HP didn't include the WWAN antenna.

    • Here's the Atmel digitizer circuit which is attached to the screen panel:

    • LVDS cable attached to the back to the LCD Panel:

    • Here's the LCD's back panel with product numbers:

    Very well made piece of hardware.

    BTW, I did get my NFC to work. All I had to do was to reset BIOS back to factory settings. For some reason, one of the BIOS updates failed to recognize that NFC was installed. After resetting the BIOS, NFC came up as an option under devices.

    Can I get instructions to replace the battery? I have the ElitePad 900.

    I want some details rather than 'just remove the battery'. eg - how do I remove the cables to separate the screen? I have managed to lift the clip for the wide cable but can't figure out the narrow one. The cables seem to be glued down. Do I just pull them up? I have a 2"x2" copper covered sticker(?) over the top of the battery on the top left hand side of the top photo which I suppose is some sort of aerial. Do I need to remove the light brown cable over the top of the battery on the top left hand side of the top photo?

    There is a surprising amount of free space in there. I wonder whether there's a handy USB 3.0 header somewhere...;)
