    Be gutsy. Find a wholesaler and ask for a sample. Or ask Samsung directly for a sample. Samsung will sometimes give away 2 or 3 parts for free since their internal cost is pretty low. Just ask for an evaluation unit. Also check out eBay for surface mount rework stations. IR ones seem to work well at home with little training (but still risky). And a company called Quikchip has a desoldering kit with an alloy that makes the solder melt and flow at very low (for solder) temperatures so there is less risk while you remove the original chip. A lighted (ring light) magnifier is useful too.

    Before you start see if you can trace the extra address line too. It may have a different function or be not connected at all for the current chip.

    Good Luck!

    this idea also occurred to me but I feared my skills at soddering to be extremely lacking for the given job. I was really happy to see this thread and I will definately follow it. If you can make this happen I will definately man up and give it a try.

    Best of luck. Imagine: if this works, the experienced modder could run a sevice where people pay and post in their iPhones for the upgrade surgery...

    Unfortunately for a project like this, Apple's engineering surpasses what can be done in the common modder's kitchen. The NAND flash modules used in both the Touch and iPhone are stacked on top of each other; in fact, no semiconductor company currently makes any NAND modules bigger than 8GB. And I'm sure Samsung's new 64Gb module (notice the lowercase Gb instead of GB to indicate gigabit, not gigabyte, so you divide by eight) are hard to get your hands on.
