In this video I will be repairing a logic board of an iPhone 4s I received in a parts lot, as it was missing its battery connecter. I attempted to repair this iPhone many months ago but failed. Today I will be fixing my 1st attempt and fully restoring the iPhone with parts I have in my parts bin.

  • 230°C ?? Tin melts at 232 and if you using leaded solder its about 300 depending on the alloy I do this kind od work at 380°C

  • I made a time-lapse video on my channel of a logic board swap because I found an iPhone 4S in a cardboard box along with a bunch of other electronics outside my apartment complex near the garbage. It was such a weird find because everything was in great condition. It was starting to rain so I rescued them. The iPhone logic board was iCloud locked and I tried contacting the owner and got no reply. Bought a new logic board off eBay for very cheap and swapped out the logic board (which was actually really fun if you're into fixing stuff). Got it working and sold it on eBay for a very nice profit. I would have done it even if I didn't make any money!

  • Are you open to accepting a challenge? I tried a screen replacement on an old 6s I bought from my friend. I’d done several screen replacements before and never had any issues. Connected the screen which worked fine. I swapped the housing. Put it all back together and upon reattaching my screen the board sizzled at the lcd connector producing a small smoke screen from the board. I’d imagine it needs an lcd or battery connector replacement (or both) and I don’t have the knowledge or money to do it myself yet. The phone appears completely dead. Any chance you could help??? I really want to give the phone back to my friend with the data on as a surprise as it’s been sat in a draw for a few years now.

I’m working on my iPad Air 2 rn, just finished the soldering and I already posted me refurbishing an iPhone 6s screen. You have been a Hugh inspiration (see what I did there) and I am so grateful I subscribed to you. Continue the good work!! xx
