Re: Cradle modification complete

And here is the PCB inside the SSD case. While I think it's so small, Ariel doesn't think so. Ariel: Master, how much stuff can u put in this huge (?) thing?【・ヘ・?】 Me: *Look at the manual* 250 gigs, actually formatted capacity less. ヘ( ̄  ̄;ヘ) Ariel: That's rubbish... The storage inside me is nearly 4...

Re: Cradle modification complete

With the help (force, actually) of her, the SSD was opened (safely).
NOTE: BEFORE you touch the PCB, you MUST ground yourself. You don't want to kill your SSD (which costs u 200 bucks) with electrostatic discharge (aka ESD).

Re: Cradle modification complete

Next, you need to (crack) open your SSD and take the PCB out of the case. Remember doing this will void the warranty.

Re: Cradle modification complete

After you get all your things ready, it's time to start working!
First, disassemble the cradle and remove the wire and the small PCB. Cut the LED off the board if you need it.

Re: Cradle modification complete

I'll write the tutorial now. If you also wanna mod your cradle, make sure you know what you are doing and operate carefully.
I'm not responsible for any damaged cradle or SSD. You have been warned (-`д´-)!

But, it's kind of useless, becuz it literally just lit up when you plug it into ur computer. It occupies a USB port but does nothing useful (for me at least), l...

I'm planning on putting a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD (cost me CA$135) into the cradle, and mod the LED into a status in...
