    Hello there :)

    I have an iphone 4s logic board which overheats. It was intermittent at 1st which let me to believe it was water damaged (corrosion over time).

    I scrubbed it with 99% but still it overheats.

    The phone is fine when off but when switched on quickly heats up (til overheat pop up) and the battery depletes very quickly.

    I have a working 4s shell (my own iphone), and have just hot swapped the boards over so this is, as far as I know, only a board issue. I have another original battery and both are fine.

    Any suggestions to whats up ? Or what to do next ?

    Photo supplied points to what heats up. http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/9766/iphone4slogicboard.jpg

    Thanks :)

    Most definitely. So how do I fix it ? Replace the chip ?

    Really? U know a buddy who has access to an industrial spider desolderer?

    Time for a new phone.

    I have a very competent component shop near me which I could try. It'll be shame if I have to scrap it as I unlocked it and put it on a jailbroken 6.0.1 too :(

    Anywhere online I could send the board for repair ?

    Thanks for the answer :/
