RE: Iaudio X5 surgery - help

Good news - I connected the battery wire and it boots OK.
I still have some screws to tighten, but it'll prolly survive.

Just don't try this at home.

No, prolly thanks to the ice;
I hope the HDD didn't suffer much (as it's adjacent to the bigger battery).

I believe the PCF50606 went berserk, but upon disconnecting it will reset
(when battery is connected the pcf never shuts down, it just stands by).

I'll watch it closely, though.

BTW, I tried to boot it from AC power, but to no avail.

Did you see anything burned/damaged ?

IMHO, if it continued to heat after a reset, it's because something has gone
wild (=damaged) before the reset.
Reconnecting the battery will have the same effect as after the reset, it
will probably restart to reheat.
