I removed the 3g module from my ipad 2 3g and wifi.

How can I restore my ipad 2 wifi+3g gsm when I have removed the 3g module. It stops about midway when installing firmware and never finishes with an error (1).

Maybe there is a chance to use it as an ipad wifi only?

No, you will need to put it back.

Unless you replace the CPU and main flash from a wifi iPad so making it a true wifi-only model.

Maybe you can show the picture , what exactly is to be removed to make it work just Wifi ?


Not removed, but replaced using the same part from a wifi only iPad.

The CPU is the chip which has Apple logo and A5 writing on it. The flash memory is the identical 2 large chips. On 16G models one of the spot is left blank.

BGA soldering skills required and replacing these parts can cost more than the device's worth. So it is hopeless.

Yes u can use wifi only. But u must try fix logic board. U must terminate Some chip on logic board. And firmware update.
