xntr, 23 Apr 2016How did he desolder the old chip? How did he solder the new one?BGA soldering techniques. Heat a bit the board to not let it all warp, heat the chip with IR light or a heat gun, remove old chip, remove solder balls, place new solder balls on new chip (if needed, usually this is the case), heat the chip in place again for the solder balls to melt. You do need some good equipment to do this, including the ball grid for the new solder balls, and this one is chip specific (probably it's a standard but there are many possible footprints).
Not something anyone with a soldering iron and patience could even bother a 1st try, it needs some pretty specific tools for the task (not specific to a Nexus 5 but for BGA work in general)
AnonD-196068, 23 Apr 2016Considering this is for eMMC and the iphone uses UFS 2.x storage I would very much doubt it. N... moreyeah it might affect the CPU/GPU performance in that matter since htey are both different chips with different programming

[deleted post]Well, i hope you can find your way to do it then. keep us posted man.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2016Does it work with Iphone???????????????????????????????hey anonymous, i think it is possible for iphone as there was a blog about that here about china doing it on some 3rd party technician. they can salvage 64/128 gb storage from defective/faulty iphone and put it on a much lesser storage iphone (i think would only work with the same make and mode iphone 5-iphone5 iphone 6-iphone 6)
Insipirational. He really loved his N5. Its like r2d2 meticuously upgraded into optimus prime :D
RaiRaiPasaway, 23 Apr 2016if you can do that, it would be really amazing.i think the back cam porgramming won't fit with the front cam, that would be hard nad for me it really is impossible for a regular geek like me to do it, specially without proper tools
not boasting off but i when i broke my high-end Lenovo phone, i took the camera on it and put it on my low-end Lenovo phone, had to do some programming before it worked properly, now my low-end Lenovo has high-end cam, next i will try putting a back cam to the front cam, it really sounds impossible to work tho
