Can I replace the logic board of an iCloud locked 5c?

I bought an iCloud locked 5c from a friend for $15 (pretty good deal, was planning on using for parts) but now i'm wondering, can i just replace the logic board and use it again?

There is probably no way my friend is ever going to remember the password and i was wondering if i could just buy a not iCloud locked logic board and put it in to have a new 5c?

Is this a good question?

Sure, you could put another 5C logic board but you will have to find one that is not iCloud locked. However, any logic board you buy will probably come with a whole phone. Then you could keep the best parts (best screen, housing etc) and combine them into one device.

Minho is right. Difficult to find a logic board being sell with no icloud lock.


@refectio had a great answer. I know there are some logic boards on eBay that people are selling that you could install. You can also buy a phone with a cracked screen to save money to pull the logic board.


yeah but there's still a huge gap between buying a logic board and buying a cracker 5c. id really rather not buy another phone. My main goal is to just spend the 20-40 dollars it takes to get a working logic board


That's going to be the problem to find a board with no iCloud for around that cost. It's going to be a challenge.
