Default Swapping 0.3MP camera with 1.3MP camera? - 06-30-2009, 07:32 AM

I have two mini 9s one with a 0.3MP cam one with a 1.3MP cam, would ideally like to swap cams (to have the 1.3MP cam in the mini with the WWAN slot/card).

Can it be done without soldering? (I am up for opening up the minis but can't use a soldering iron...)

If so, does anyone have any advice / tips / links to pics or diagrams or manuals that would help?

Black Mini 9: 64Gb Runcore SSD, Windows XP Home, 2Gb RAM, 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth

the cameras both have the same connector in the same place. Simply remove the bezel, unplug and unstick the camera, and swap them. Good to go.
