Default [Q] Galaxy SII data recovery (dead power chip)

Hello guys.. new to the forum (first post) but a fan for awhile.
i have a samsung galaxy s2 with a dead power chip.
Does anyone have a clue or an idea about how to save the data on the internal memory?
i'm up for almost everything..

No chance, other than a company who specialises in recovery of data from dead HDD's; expect this to be very expensive if possible. However...there are some people on here who claim replacing the 'power IC' is possible, but I still haven't seen a single case on here where that's been successful/a motherboard replacement hasn't been required to fix (the normal fix).

Search for similar threads, someone posted here recently somewhere where you could buy the part.

The other issue is, if there's other components dead on the NB, you're going to have to end up replacing it at anyway, so you run the risk of 'double paying' for the fix if replacing this individual component doesn't work (and assuming you can even find a repairer who will attempt this for you).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
