    I saw a lot of videos about how to open an Iphone etc and the mainboard was always blue.
    I bought one at ebay and when I opened it I saw that its green.
    Does someone know why it could be green?

    And you a sure it is the logic board with the metal cover on tip of t and not te dock connector assembly? Maybe you reviews a fake?

    I have never seen a blue one. maybe in another country they are blue. I have worked on 100's and they have all been green.

    Interesting, and you're in Indiana? All the ones I've worked on (3G and 3GS actually, it's been a while since I looked inside a 2G) have been blue. I'm in Maryland.

    Logic Board Color

    interesting.....

    but what it boils down to is the one he got off eBay is legit! I guess they have different colors depending on who makes them....

    I have no idea if it is legit. That is why I am asking if they are blue or green - the legit ones-.

    It is exactly the part in that link above.


    Cause I always saw blue ones. I am from Germany I have no idea if they guy who sold it to me used a legit part or not.
    I am afraid that he did not use a legit part and sold me some crap.

    Is it supposed to be green or blue?

    Edit:
    If it is not legit I got another reason to give it back. Cause the connector of cable #3 is also broken and he does not want to take it back. :|

    logic board

    it is definately legit at least in the USA. I have worked on hundreds of iPhone's and they have all been green. if you look at a parts list you will see that there are usually more than one supplier for each part. therefore you may have a different color at times. if the phone works it has to be legit. the #3 cable is an easy fix.

    Cable #3 is the earphone connector right? OP do you mean the little latch piece is broken off? What's the fix, chargit?

    if it is the latch piece that is broke then thats a little tougher. there are threads on here about replacing it. the part is about $10 but you need someone who can do micro soldering to attach it to the logic board. usually about $100 for the soldering. not cheap but can be done. I thought he meant the actual #3 ribbon was messed up. that controls the ear speaker, and the proximity sensor. alot of times people think their speaker is bad when it is really just the proximity sensor.
