anybody tried to simply add one module?


are there any new information about this interesting topic ?

Particularly, on the iPad 2 (16gb) logic board, we can clearly see there is a free space supposed to accept a second NAND chip.

What's more interesting is that all the peripheral small electronic part seems to be already in place !

That means that the board seem super ready to accept two modules (as is probably the case on 32, 64 models).

Did't anybody tried to simply add one module ?

For someone getting stuck for some reason or another with a 16 Gb that would certainly be both nicer and cheaper to have an additional internal memory than buying wifi HDD or using not so ergonomic camera connector....

Any experience with this ?

Don't know were your looking at there is no free space for a second chip. The space I think your looking at is a chip on the GSM versions of the iPad2. Besides the costs & risks don't make is very economical for someone to do this as a service (desoldering the smaller chip and putting on a larger one in its place).
