Answer to: Purchase iPhone 5 logic board?Hi, I do not think that there is a cost effective way to purchase a new and complete logic board as you are almost buying an entire phone. I would be cautious on any cheap board being sold as new and complete. Ebay sell new bare boards for educational purposes but they cannot be used. There are often used 'for parts' boards that need to be fixed and sometimes working ones on ebay for what ever they bid up to.
Answer to: Logic board piece broke off, any chance of repair?If it makes you feel any better, I did the exact same thing one month ago per this Black screen with light at edges from missing cap (in that post I have incorrectly called the component L44 when it is actually L42). jessabethany helped me work out what was wrong with my phone and having read through the comments on her facebook page I would recommend her for a fix. I am in Brisbane Australia and as I could not find anyone local to fix it, I tried it myself. Not a good result as you can see from the image - I got some solder on the LCD connector and managed not to fix the problem. L42 goes between the A6 processor and the connector to the LCD. Paul
