LCD Upgrade
#1
Hello All,
I'm considering upgrading LCD panel on my pinebook to something better.
If I got spec sheet right - the panel used on pinebook is BOE HB140WX1-501, which using 30 pins eDP 1-line interface and require 3.3V. Panel specs
I'm thinking about trying AUO B140HAN01.3, which is 30 pins eDP 2-lines, same 3.3V. Panel specs
Does anyone tried something similar before (not necessary with same panel model)? Is there anything else I need to take into account before purchasing it?

For 1080P panel, you will need to OS with 1080p LCD driver to work accordingly. Xalius has the 1080P Pinebook OS build and you can check with him.

I'm interested in doing this also.

Does the Pinebook 14in board support the two eDP channels needed on the 30pin connector to run at 1920x1080?

Whats the best way to open the LCD case? It looks like it snaps together.

The 14" Pinebook has the eDP channels to support 1080P IPS screen.

Just turn the Pinebook over and unscrew ten small screws on the bottom case.  When open, if the magnet bars (4 pieces), just place back properly.Whole process takes less than 3 mins.

Thanks. I saw the instructions on how to remove the LCD screen Pinebook top from the bottom but how do you open the plastic case containing the plastic around the LCD once you have it separated?

Under the 4 rubber stand-offs that prevent the keyboard from scratching the screen there are 4 screws, which you need to undo first. Those little rubber stand-offs are held in place using adhesive tape and come off quite easily. With the 4 screws removed, you just need a pry-tool or a credit card. The lid and LCD bezel are held together using plastic clips - I suggest start prying from either left or right of the webcam.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Perfect.  That was the information I was looking for.

AUO B140HAN01.3 is about as expensive as a complete 14" Pinebook. I found it for $83.20 on Aliexpress. Any less expensive options?

I've seen them on eBay for $65 or so.

Ebay was considerably cheaper than Ali. Found one for less than $40 (plus $10 s&h)
For that little money, I shall give it a try.
