I bought an iPad with dead battery (it’s bulged). When I connect it to a charger, the only result is a boot loop (Apple logo, blink, Apple logo, blink…).
I want to use it as a kind of picture frame, which would necessitate constant charging anyway, so I’m reluctant to buy a replacement battery that will be of no use and dead again within few months because of constant charging.
I am thinking that it should be possible to solder a charger into battery circuit (disconnecting the battery, of course) to trick iPad into thinking it actually has a battery connected.
Do you know any examples of this?
The closest thing I've experienced was with my laptop. At some point the battery died and the laptop started misbehaving (rebooting, not starting etc.) I removed the battery and use it only on charger now and have no issues. Note that the battery was encapsulated in the laptop, so I had to disassemble it to remove the battery. Try first removing the battery from your Ipad and running it with charger only.
