Well I don't know about anyone else but I am just getting tired of this guy posting saying he has hacked LCDs. Big deal, why does anyone else care and why does he seem so needy to mention "I am 100% sure I am the first". Controlling LCDs are mostly all identical, and with a scope and enough time any LCD can be programmed without the datasheet. The reason no one is doing this is because what is the point. Why waste time and money figuring out the interface for an unknown screen instead of just buying a known one with a datasheet? Perhaps the challenge and pleasure of managing it for a screen or 2, but why sit there and just take apart countless phone screens and program them, if its been done once its been done a million times.
What would be more constructive and interesting to people is to actually make a post about what you do, your general procedures for figuring out the interface standards and the likes, and document things like that. At least they are beneficial and partially interesting.
