    Default What should I do with iPhone 2G PARTS??
    A friend gave me his iPhone 2G since he got it damaged by water. The screen didnt work and it seemed not to turn on.
    After a while I connected it to iTunes but it didnt connect so I put it in recovery mode and luckily I was able to restore it

    So I thought the screen was the only problem. I have also another 2G in another thread which has a NO SERVICE problem which has yet to be resolved. I was thinking if the problem cannot be resolved I might just take that screen and connect it to the iPhone with the broken screen.

    At this time I have successfully disassembled the iPhone 2G.

    Can I have some ideas what to do next please?

    Throw it in the trash. 99% chance the board is toasted.

    I never thought of that I'll try that if my other 2G cannot be repaired in any other way. Cheers

    How would you know if its toasted? It successfully restored itself since I got it to connect with iTunes. By the way iPhone parts are quite pricey these days

    You can probe the board to find where the shorts are, but I doubt you have the equipment or knowledge to do so. There is no telling what transformers or smd's are damaged. But swapping parts around is most likely not going to get you going, unless your very lucky.

    does anyone know a good website to get a comm board/battery combo?

    I made the mistake of accidentally breaking off the contact points for the battery =/

    is iphonepartspro.com a good site?

    You're right I don't have the knowledge and that seems a bit too complicated for me. Thanks for your input cpjr

    if he snapped it off the battery side i would suggest throwing it away . unless you want to try and solder it back and have it explode in your face
