do this to your aphone and it'll probably blows up in your face and apple will sue you
Alien, 23 Apr 2016Wow! Very cool and kudos to that guy! But for me it is too much of a hassle so I'll just choo... moreWhy not S7? You can change resolution for gaming to 1080p if u want and have a much better phone.
Why would you want to increase the storage of an old phone like nexus 5 this must be just to see if he could do it or not and not for daily usage shame he could fit a better battery its shocking on nexus 5
I knew it is possible.. Haha.. Back in the day i search high and low for a way to increase my lovely 7650's paltry 4MB internal memory.. I was thinking of swapping the chip with 6600's internal which is 10MB a theoretical increase of 150%.. Wow.. But back then I was just a small fry.. Those were the days.. Brings back memories.. Still missing my 7650 right now.. My 1st smartphone
It only shows how much we need Project Ara (or something alternative, since Ara development seems stagnant at the moment). Good job though. That's why we need open construction phones.
Wow! Very cool and kudos to that guy!
But for me it is too much of a hassle so I'll just choose what I think to be the perfect combo:
- SD Card
- FHD Display
The only phone to have those features: X Performance from Sony.
Well dome modder :)
If every phone had expandable storage this wouldn't be necessary but as big corporations like screwing every last penny they can out of customers (You know who I am talking about) thank goodness for modders. Freedom will always win.
wish it could be done for the original galaxy s to make it 2 gig like the american s3.
this kind of silly things in android stops me to migrate any other luxurIsucks os ;)
this is why Motorola engineer come with Motorola ARA, so we can custom chip, memory, RAM, etc. but after google took over the project, there is no further development. I hope google give back project ARA back to Motorola. after all Motorola is so much better in hardware innovation
"At first people didnÂ’t know what the hell he was saying, and others were reassuring that there was no such thing as a 64GB Nexus 5. But there actually is now."
Lolz. That made my day!!
Congratulations to the modder. His hard work eventually paid off. Nice job!
Yow, 23 Apr 2016i think the back cam porgramming won't fit with the front cam, that would be hard nad for me i... moreTo be fair I'm amazed you managed to port the hardware driver/routines to the other phone, and also that the modules had same interface and fit.
Possible it is, how much of work, no idea!
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016Does it work with Iphone???????????????????????????????Pretty much how Apple would do it (except not removing a chip but just placing the correct sized one from start), the software tools needed would be different tho and so is the chip needed. I have no idea how is the iPhone hardware programmed to accept the memory chips, but having that figured out, it's probably 1/10 of the price for a memory upgrade.
....obviously tho 100x the risk and work.
If one knows how to make the phone accept the new memory chip it will be the same work of de-soldering and re-soldering it.
Really cool..you got balls bro i would have been to afraid to damage my bored to do that..that static for your body is pain..up up
Hi, 23 Apr 2016yeah it might affect the CPU/GPU performance in that matter since htey are both different chip... morehere's the link:
