Data recovery with incomplete logic boards
Was just having a think this afternoon, a year or so ago, i bought an incomplete iPhone 5 logic board to test my skills in trying to get a phone working again after a full transplant. Safe to say, a year has passed and I have not touched it yet lol
For those who don't know what an incomplete board is, its basically a logic board with all components on it besides ICs (23 of them i believe)
I have a customers iPhone 7 that has failed due to the board having internal damage from it being bent beyond its capability. It got me thinking, could data recovery be done on phones like this using these incomplete boards??
If it is possible, what components would have to be removed and put on the incomplete board or would CPU and NAND suffice to just recover this data? (forget the other missing IC's, I plan to add the ones that are needed only.)
Is this a good question?
