If you thought your fixer skills were elite, check out this video below by user glonwywen – G-Lon channel on YouTube – with an amazing demonstration of grinding the A8 processor in an iPhone 6+ down to its sub-components, and then jumping them to create a working, bootable device. That’s all kinds of crazy! The description of the video translates to:
CPU sealing off the U0301, without removal of the CPU to the solution
You can see the CPU located just above and to the right of his left thumb – that green splotch on the corner of the CPU is where it was ‘repaired’:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
