M1 Logic Board Swap

I was wondering before I attempt to swap my logic board if there was any steps I need to do to prep it or any configuration after the fact?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Brendan Woods, You need to be aware that all the M series MacBooks have serialised EVERYTHING!

This means that screen assembly is serialised to the logic board, trackpad, etc.

What are the reasons you’re wanting to replace the logic board? If there are issues, have you tried diagnosing and perhaps fixing the original one? We’re happy to try to help :)

I have a heavily beat up macbook air with a dead screen and another in good condition that is activation locked (Goodwill find) both are base m1 airs


Brendan Woods, Unfortunately there’s no way for us DIYers and repair techs to change the serialisation, that’s Apple only :(

The serialisation is stored and tucked away on a ROM on the logic board.


The only thing you could do is swap out the case parts if they are banged up except for the display assembly.
