JKK hacks the Amtek T770 UMPC
September 12, 2007
JKK has done it again. This time he built his own stand, swapped the 2.5″ hard drive for SSD by installing a CF to IDE adapter, and best of all, hacked in a HSDPA module. Very impressive.
With some double sided tape, extra power from the hard drive cable, and a custom antennae, he was able to install the HSDPA module he grabbed from his external Zadacom 3G+ modem.
He’s getting around 10-15% improved battery life with the CF card and HSDPA module. He reports the Wifi connection using more power than the HSDPA module as one of the factors.
