    Here, I found this for you. Let me know if you're going to pass on it, because I will grab it if you don't. :biggrin:

    Any idea on swapping the internal storage? I'd assume everything would come over. I got no hits on my thread asking about it.

    You still have your entire motherboard right? More than likely the one in this phone is scrap. I would just swap them out. Or if you had issues with your old motherboard, just swap out the board that contains the SIM card slot and the hard drive.

    No other problems with my phone. I'd probably swap all of the internals. Good call.

    It's fairly straight forward. I take it you already have the phone disassembled. Lol

    I went through that with a GS3 my friend had,he cracked the screen 3 weeks after he purchased it so he found a replacement screen but it came without the digitizer attached. I ended up using a heat gun to separate the two and found that those screens are pretty tough because I was worried about the screen having dark spots from the heat gun but it turned out perfect and it all went back together fine.

    Wait... so you were able to successfully get the glass and the lcd separated? Then get them reattached?

    Yeah but we ended up having to use a really thin double stick clear tape,first we had to get all the adhesive off the digitizer. But I learned about using the thin tape when we pulled the back off of a Razor to jump the battery and bring it out of bootloop after killing the battery, my nephew works for a tech and he gets us really good alcohol to clean the adhesive off the parts and re-apply the new tape.
