I got an Iphone 5s in 5$ , it was working perfectly as IPOD, but during updating IOS its stuck in Apple Logo , i show the phone to a local repair shop they said Basband chip is damaged and you need to replace the logic board.

Daiyan, the baseband chip is a BGA that will require a reball. So you will need to have a reflow machine as well as the right stencil etc. to do that. Even if you have all that, the IC needs to be pre-programmed to function with your phone, since there are multiple IC that are dependent on each other. Yes it can be replaced, no it is not going to work with your phone.

Hi, Thanks for giving details , the final option is to replace the Logic board.

Btw any idea or tips to make it out from Apple logo problem , its turning on and Showing ITunes , i used reiboot to make out from Recovery Mode but still its up and turning off after few seconds.


Well, again not sure, but you can send it out to a repair shop, that works or specializes in micro soldering
