For experiment purposes, I would like to take out the miniSD card of the FP2.
Now, I have succeeded in taking apart all modules, screen, etc…
But the miniSD card is still protected by material, which seems to be impossible to get through.
Does anyone know if it’s possible to get out the miniSD card, and perhaps put it into a miniSD card reader? Or replace the whole miniSD by another one?
If yes, could you please show me how? It would be greatly appreciated.
There is no spring-out mechanism in the FP2 microSD card slot. I have always found a slim pair of tweezers (a pincette) very helpful with getting the SD card out of its slot in the FP2. it’s indeed a bit of a challenge without any tool.
On the iFixIT page you find a teardown of the FP2.
Maybe you could clarify what you are really meaning by pointing at/referencing one of the pictures there, since I suspect it’s not the micro SD card.
Do you, by any chance, mean the part, that has an orange frame on step 12? Although it’s got the form of a SD-card, it’s said to be WiFi and Bluetooth.

The slot of the micro SD-card would be to the right of the red frame.
The card is inserted/removed from above (“North” in this picture).
And when you have taken apart your FP2 to the core, this should be easyly accessible.
