Nexus 5X Service Only: Qi Wireless Charging Modification
**Rebate is available for this mod service: http://www.phonerepair.us/rebate?...
We were able to modify the Nexus 5X to include a wireless qi charging coil. Many have asked us to provide selling the phone with the mod installed or the service only. So here it is...
If you like to send your Nexus 5X for the mod, you can send your phone to:
XCUBICLE - Phonerepair.us
25 ESSEX STREET
NEW YORK, NY 10002
Make sure you have a note inside with your name, email, and phone number. You can choose to pay ahead of time or after the mod is done. Up to you.
As for doing the mod, please back up all your stuff before you send in your phone. As who know what could happen during the modding process. Just worst case scenario.
Too bad we can't install the mod onto the 6P due to the metal back casing that interferes with the charging. =(
Turn around time is about 1 week for the mod.
Update: The first attempt at repair did not succeed, brought the iPhone back he replaced the entire assembly with the problem and charged a reasonable fee for the additional work. Still satisfied!
After updating my rating to 3 stars, I was told I could get my fan replaced, but the risk is that the system will overheat again at some point. My system is pretty old, so I'm wondering if I should pre-emptively buy a new one instead of messing with this one any more (could probably sell it). I'd lose the backward compatibility, but I really don't play the old games anymore. Anyway, my point is, this place is great. I'll keep it at 4 stars because it wasn't clear to me just how loud the fan would be, but they are well priced, quick, and very accomodating.
I was playing four-year-old my Xbox 360 a few weeks ago and saw some spontaneous fuzzy lines on the screen. As I desperately tried to get Master Chief to safety, the unit turned off and I got the dreaded Red Ring of Death (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xb…)! The Microsoft website was confusing; it either wanted $70 plus shipping, or was telling me that pre-2010 machines would not be fixed at all. The RROD is basically just caused by crappy thermal tape on the board of the unit, so I thought fixing it locally would be better. When I dropped off my device at xCubicle, they immediately confirmed the issue. I left them a $20 deposit. A few days later, they called and it was all fixed! They showed me that it was working on a monitor before I took it home. The total price was $65. The location itself is actually a corner store, and you can't go inside - it's just a super tiny window that opens up. Having hardcore gamers shyly pop their heads out of a tiny window covered in Mario stickers seems like it confirms a number of stereotypes, but these guys are awesome.
