He said "build a new one from scratch". Using 2 broken iPhones isn't really the same thing IMO. That's more like a refurb than from scratch.No you don't.
You can buy an iPhone battery as it comes. I know this for a fact as i've stripped my iPhone to replace the back cover with a nice blue one, I had to pull the battery of the back plate, I nearly broke it in the process. It comes with contacts that connect to the motherboard and so on.
If you could get the motherboard, battery, camera parts, headphone jack parts etc etc etc.... then it's just a case of getting a screen and housing.
It depends how deep the OP wants to go into getting the individual parts. But as stated, you would have no warranty whatsoever.
It's just like building a computer, you get all the major parts, which are all available, even if you buy broken iPhones off eBay or CL and you can make yourself an iPhone.
I think you guys are thinking a little deep. With maybe 2 broken iPhones you could build a perfectly working iPhone. It's what I do on the side. Buy broken one's, replace screens etc (sorry for the over use of 'etc') and sell them for more money and make profit etc.. easy money- eBay is my friend.
^Sarcasm isn't really one of your best aspects.I suspect it would be about as easy as building a fine swiss watch from scratch.
I know, I was just trying to simplify things so people could look at it in a different way. You could do it, you would probably have to buy the motherboard intact, all other the other parts are no doubt available on the web somewhere. It would take a bit of time and a lot of patience.He said "build a new one from scratch". Using 2 broken iPhones isn't really the same thing IMO. That's more like a refurb than from scratch.
