U601 RF Replacement iPhone 5 Baseband Chip IC U16X
I have a problem with an iPhone 5 it was dropped and has had a new front panel but the phone is now not activating, the phone has been restored and now gets Error 16 about 80% through. After some research I found its probably the U601_RF. I have purchased this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291322189388?_... as an attempted fix but I need some advice on removing the original chip.
I have removed the EMI Shield from the mainboard using a heat-tool with a 4mm tip @ 250 degrees, but this doesn't seem to be enough for the chip as its not budging. I have cranked the temperature up a bit to 300 but still not moving. I dont want to go above this temp for obvious reasons. Can anyone offer any advice on removing the chip without damaging the mainboard? I think there may be some resin surrounding the chip but its pretty hard to see, maybe this needs cleaning/removing first?
Is this a good question?
