    Hello guys. I'm new here. Basically what happened is I bought an iCloud locked iPhone 5S on eBay. I have an iPhone 5S (T-Mobile unlocked) which I took apart and couldn't put back. So it's basically in pieces, but I'm almost certain all the parts are in a working condition. Which parts would I have to swap from my 5S to the iCloud locked one in order for it to work? It would be awesome if I could transfer all the data as well. Thank you in advance and have a great day.

    The logicboard would need to be switched between the two.

    You took the 5s apart and couldn't put it back together.
    And now you will attempt to switch the logic boards and internal components between 2 phones and you will be able to put it all back together?:D

    It sounds problematic to say the least. :).

    Seems like a fairly obvious idea. ;)

    Home button with touch sensor has to be moved to the other iPhone together with logic board.

    LOL.

    You'll be fine. Just work in a clean space and label everything or record yourself taking it apart.
    Try this link for pointers.
