Although you said that you do not want to spend money on this phone, you could buy an iCloud locked one off of somewhere like Craigslist in fairly good condition, and swap the logic boards.


Lmao buying an icloud one and swapping the boards would mean u have an icloud locked on in ur housing lol how will that help anything


Buying an iCloud locked one ? LMAO

Albany Bet sorry but no. You can not apply jumpers to that. You can try and determine which part truly has failed and then do a proper repair, or you can send it off to someone like @refectio to do it for you. Since spending money is not an option and you do not want to solder, then I'd suggest you just leave it the way it is and get used to a dark phone. There is no other way to do it.
