There are 5 Pins right above the vibrating Motor, are they possibly a micro USB port? If so, which pin is what? I’d love to 3d-print a back-cover that could be used for external battery packs or other modules
Hi Gerrit, this has been discussed already, AFAIK. Just search the forum for “back connector”. Here is the pin layout (thx for that to Dirk):
These threads (from the

I have been having trouble with a broken USB port for use with charging the phone and since Christmas and New Year is around there was no way to get a warranty replacement in time.

Also, if you have a cool idea for some design I should make, post below!
I’m no DIY guy mysef though, so I can’t tell if this will really help.
