    Default iphone 2G - testing logicboard

    I have a spare 2G logicboard lying around which im pretty sure works...i want to test that it works in order to sell it...

    Can i remove a different logicboard from the comm board while the battery is still attached without anything short circuiting or burning anything...??

    Any recommendations welcome! Thanks

    Any 2G logic board (4,8 or 16GB) board is compatible with any 2G comm board. This is the best way to test a logic board.

    I've done this many times in the past when I worked on 2G iPhones. I never had an issue. If you want to be 100% safe and have good soldering skills, then remove the battery first. No harm in that. Personally, I found it to be a huge hassle to desolder the battery unless I absolutely had to.

    you dont want to do that my friend. yes we've all successfully moved the comm board with battery still attached one or the other time before but, i've managed to kill two comm boards in this manner.
    desoldering just the ground battery cable(black) wont require quantum physics and would save you a lot of hassles as it shuts power of the board completely.

    nb when you do desolder, use tape tape to hold the wire against the body of the battery so it dont touch anywhere as yo make your change.


    i hope i aint too late
    goodluck man!
