Well it looks like it's able to be resurrected without a fine soldering iron. Hopefully the battery will last for three years. The old phone is now a guitar tuner.

I think if you anticipate the end of it's life cycle, the battery might be cheapest past the halfway point.

I wonder if the sdcard image could be dumped and copied to a larger new one.

In that article what i have posted is written that even if you could replace the memory it would not work,
because you can not copy the operating system (whatever they mean with it) from the original card to the new one.
For that you would need special hardware, which is used by manufacturers to flash memory.

It is not an SDcard it is an eMMC.

battery is quite easy to remove even by a novice but if nobody provides us with a replacement battery to fit its not much use.
