Kobo Glo HD motherboard (or broken device with functioning motherboard)

This is my first post here but I'm a long time lurker with a Kobo Glo HD.

However, it bricked recently, it seems like the Ricoh Power Management Unit is faulty from what I've read here. It just died when I plugged it in my phone charger an it's now completely unresponsive and the PMU chip gets extremely hot when charging.

So I'm looking for a replacement motherboard, or a device with a broken screen or that's otherwise unusable, but with a working motherboard. I can fix the common broken usb port, so if this is the only issue of your motherboard, I might still be interested.

Thank you very much in advance!

I ended up buying a Kobo-refurbished Glo HD on ebay (they are selling a few there at a very reasonable price) and swapping the on-board sd-card for the one from my old one and everything is good.

I'd still like a motherboard to try and save my old unit if someone eventually has one to sell.
