So I have my S4 that's got a broken screen and loose charging port. I have a blacklisted phone that I got screwed on just sitting on my shelf.

Can I just swap out the boards?

Are they the same carrier? If so then I would certainly try. Im quite familiar with the S2 internally, and every other way as well, which maybe a lot different than the S4 but likely not.
What I know about the s2 is it is easy to deal with and the different pieces inside are buttoned together or little snaps is the way I see think of them. I broke a piece once by trying to remove it the wrong way before I realized it was little snaps that joined the mic or vibratot and cameras to the mother board. Have fun. Sounds like you have nothing to loose.

Yes they are the same carrier.

I'll try it and report back. I've watched a few videos on how to remove it and it seems pretty easy. Or at least straight forward.
