Samsung Galaxy S9 motherboard swap

I have purchased a fully working Samsung Galaxy S9 and will be swapping the motherboard from the old phone to new phone. ( will be cleaning the original motherboard from water damaged phone using some 99.9 isopropyl alcohol prior to swap and hope for the best, I believe the motherboard is OK and just the screen on the original phone was damaged.)

What I need to know now is on the new phone prior to swap, do i need to go through setting up the new phone prior to motherboard swap or do I swap before doing phone setup or does it not make any difference either way?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks everyone. the motherboard swap worked.

So a Galaxy S9 motherboard survived a full wash cycle in a washing machine just damage to touch screen only.

Purchased a mint condition S9 off ebay for £134 and having cleaned the original motherboard from water damaged S9 with 99.9% Isopropyl alcohol and swapped it over to new replacement phone and powered up the phone everything works!!!

Thanks for all the advice.


Good job! Happy it worked

If I understand.your question correctly, just go ahead with the swap. It makes no difference.

There are no setting to adjust when swapping motherboards.

I hope this helps
