I am looking into reviving bricked Veers due to failed A6/Modem firmware update using JTAG and was wondering if anyone has a completely disassembled Veer that they could take picture of?

Rod disassembled his completely, but there's still a piece of grey tape on 2 some of the chips. I would like to have a picture of the chips underneath this grey tape, so we can determine what points are suitable for JTAG and to try to recover the Veers

This is the part I'm referring to with the grey tape (original picture by Rod Whitby):

I just don't feel like completely disassembling my Veer with the risk of bricking it forever if someone already has done it

Here is the link to a company repairing HP devices in Germany. Maybe you’re lucky asking them…

But they are most probably not responsible for the phones, because they are still very much "Palm" even if "HP" is printed on them... at least my phone was repaired in ireland, although I'm from germany, from a company called SBE, this is the address:

SBE UK Limited
(Palm Repair Centre)
Beaver Business Park
Ashford
Kent
TN23 7SH
United Kingdom

Hello Herrie,

Did you make any progress in restoring A6 bricked Veers ?
I have one and by mistake applied the A6 upgrate and it failed. Now it switching on and HP log displays for a second. I have tried to start it a few times and once it goes to the Battery with ? mode, any thing I can do from that point ?

I live in Finland

I have a Veer that was not functioning all that well because of moisture ie: rain ... I think the only thing wrong with it was the volume keys?? but would be happy to post it to you FOC if ya want. You can rip it apart
