but it seems to me strange that I have damaged hardware simply removing the display...
remove dusplay and retry?
remove touch panel and retry?
throw everything in the trash waiting santa claus with a new one?
Removing the display wouldn't cause it to not show up as a M3/M6 chip on the computer. So if it's still not showing up after my other suggestions maybe it is time to toss it. When I meant damaged hardware, I meant thinks like the motherboard, nand or USB input, not the display itself since that doesn't need to be working to get the computer to recognize the tablet.
