Thread: Swapping 4g camera to 2G iphone?

  1. #1
    Default Swapping 4g camera to 2G iphone?
    I have a couple of 2G iphones that work great. When I replaced the comm board in one I found out how easy it is to remove and replace the camera. I'm wondering if it would be possible to buy a 4G camera which is supposedly a much better camera, and drop it right into a 2G iphone. I suppose the software is different so I wouldn't be able to zoom...... But has anyone tried it? The cameras on my 2Gs are both almost worthless.

    I don't think it would work, even if you could fit it in the space and connect it, it probably needs different drivers which a 2G iphone wouldn't have.

    Default 3GS camera
    What about a 3GS camera? Would that work? I found one on eBay for 22 cents plus $5 shipping. I'm going to find out if it works.

    no...you have to understand that each camera was made specifically for that version of phone and u cannot just put another camera as an upgrade from a different model phone...
