Hi I, already covered the cameras of my FP2 with black isolation tape.
But its hard to stop the microphones from recieving any usable signal by similar means.
Thats why I wanted to ask if its possible to solder the mircophones off? (I would be using a headset instead)
Has anyone done it before?
Or does the FP-Team know if this has some chance of success(keeping the phone still working?)
I am well aware of the warrenty void.
The skill and the equipment for fine soldering is existing with friends of mine.
Removing the microphone module seems to be pretty easy, but it holds a few others important components such the USB and speakers. The microphone should be the tiny black box on the left of the USB port:
Other option could be to remove the hardware driver, it should be somewhere under /system/vendor, but not sure where. Without the driver there’s no way the mic could caption anything (and it would be a reversible option).
