Why is this not possible. Basically what is stopping me from sticking a 16gb chip in here?
I dont see a slot anywhere, do you?
Must be some fancy new sim card technology
But really, not possible unless you are manufacturing the iphone out of your basement.
Because soldiering Nand chips onto a PCB is something Apple wants the end user doing.
Bummer. I was looking for the hard drive slot too but I couldn't find it.
It's a valid question though if you don't own an iPhone or haven't looked over the specific specs.
true, I have not looked at the inside. but with enough modding, would it be at all possible to sod a new chip in there, or do you think i would be looking at some software limitations?
Could always try. I know people have been successful putting chips into the Nano and them working. Of course the iPhone has a bit more complicated OS so who knows.
If I recall (which may not be very accurate), the Samsung flash chip is a BGA package. Unless you happen to have a $$$$ BGA rework station at your disposal, this is about as far from a DIY operation as you can get...
I doubt its that simple.
The phone probably wouldnt support it.
And messing around with such an expensive phone is a bad idea IMO.
IF someone send me the phone and the chips I have access to a someone that can do it. It would be a fun experiment!
If you pay me $600 plus the cost of the 16GB RAM, I might consider it.
As for the OS, It's basically OS X minus the desktop apps. It views the memory in there now as one big file system, like any good UNIX OS should. So added memory houldn' tbe a problem there. It's just the hardware that's the issue.
If you call one 8 gig iPhone from another, you get 16 gigs. Easy.
