    So I dissected my old iPod Touch 4 and I was wondering the value of an old A4 chip.

    Any comments? Questions? :p

    I'd say the A5 chip has the most value. The iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S are still going. It's like the Energiser Bunny of Apple products.

    I don't even know if you can swap chips inside a device...would ios reject the new chip?

    Probably. I've never heard of anyone upgrading their chips.

    You would need a microscope to do the micro-soldering required to transplant the chip from one board to another, it is far cheaper and easier to replace the entire circuit board than just the A4.
