Where i can find motherboard scheme?

evgenholkin - Replica

Where is the Bluetooth/WiFi filter?

Mine doesn't work, I need to replace it. I'm from India.

What are the other alternatives for the filter? I mean, other filters that can be used (Replacement for the original one, ofcourse).

I've been using my Moto X (1st Gen) as an Mp3 player/Camera/Video Player. I don't want to continue using it this way. This smartphone is one of the best mankind has ever manufactured. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.
