    Hi, I'd like to describe my Treo 650 Hardware tuning.

    Let's start with hardware mod "Antenna removed":
    I've soldered 3 copper wires: 2 to antenna's connector and one to exterbal antenna's connector. Next I glued them with cyanoacryl:
    -first wire along SD slot and camera
    -second wire down along SIM slot and turn right in direction to rear speaker
    -third wire. Firstly I placed it on bigger PCB. Next it runs glued along the pcb's edge to keyboard. Then it turns and runs between keyboard and PCB, then ends.
    I'VE GOT BETTER COVERAGE THAN WITH NORMAL ANTENNA

    Next is Additional hardware button:
    In my opinion Hotsync button is unusable:
    -it's placed on cable/craddle
    -I prefer using SD card and don't hotsync.
    So I placed it in Treo. How to do it:
    -get very small "reset button" with long knob
    -cut it with tiny rasp to be as small as it's possible
    -solder one of its connectors to camera's case
    -solder its second end to very thin copperwire (eg. from bricked trafo)
    -place the copperwire on PCB and glue it, but in place when it will not disturb
    -solder the other end of copperwire to bototm connector pin 6 (counting from audio jack) - HotSync button pin
    -cut the back side of treo's case to fit new button
    NOW YOU HAVE ANOTHER HARDWARE BUTTON NEXT TO AUDIO SWITCH
    Of course it's still possible to hotsync your Treo.

    Third mod, very quick. Reset hole
    As we know, treo must be reset sometimes, especially when testing new apps, cooking new ROM etc. After some time of use Treo starts to be slower and when I turn off phone it vibrates 7 times with 1,5 second gaps (after hard reset the gab between vibtations is about 1/4 second).
    It's good to have a reset hole. I've drilled a 4mm hole in battery cover and in my aluminium case. Directly over reset switch. That's all. Now I can reset Treo in any moment with stylus.
