I'm a sysadmin for a computer repair shop, and I often have to do specialty solder jobs because I have extremely steady fingers. I was reading the old "AIRCRACK-NG SUITE WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE OUR PHONES GOT NEUTERED" threads, and was wondering if I would be the first person to do this. If it has been done, did it work?

Thats a wholen'other can of worms my friend.

There is only one possible scenario where this to work. Your camera in the phone is just an immasculated blackberry camera which has the APIs for the flash. In which case I would only need to solder, and cut the phone, install different camera software and BANG it works.

I doubt we have been so fortunate. I haven't seen my phone naked yet. If anybody can confirm unused solder points on the camera this may work.
