A friend of mine recently was playing with his Samsung Galaxy Note and the phone somehow froze during a flash and he got the battery out. The phone after that wasn't turning on and he sent it to a local service shop. The service shop tried JTAGing the phone with Riff box but probably the servicer who was trying the JTAG screwed the EMMC chip even more and completely fried it. He told me all of this and I thought of the idea buying the phone so I decided to offer him 100 euros... and he agreed.



After 3 days of Google-ing, searching everywhere on the internet and trying everything (even for other phones), I found that the only solution for this phone is replacing the EMMC chip which costs 60 euros if I order it from here (I haven't found any other website to order N7000 EMMC chip but if you know some other, please share!).

Now I'm going to order this chip tomorrow and it should arrive in a week so I'll post the progress of my project.

Thought of sharing my experience with buying and repairing a completely screwed up phone that even JTAG couldn't fix it.

Do you have any kind of infrared soldering equipment? Are you removed the old emmc? Is it glued? (Ofcourse it is!)

Do you have any high level soldering skill? Special flux gel, reball equipment? Ok i dont bothering you more im just trying to told that it will be a very very very hard project for a man who dont trained specially for these kind of work.

I have a local electrician over here which is willing to solder the specific BGA chip. I know that is a hard thing to do by your own.

You would of been a lot better buying a full second hand main board, instead of the chip. Reballing and reflowing a chip is not something to do in your kitchen.

Buying a new motherboard is more expensive than buying just the emmc chip... of course, if you know what's the problem of the phone.

Everytime i started any such mission. It always leads to ruining the equipment. I have damaged my microwave, laptop operated it to clean the fan, my old tv and so many other goods.

Order placed
Guys I have placed the order of the chip at parts4repair.com . I hope the shipping time of the item will be fast because it's not a big thing and it will be processed fast trough postals and customs. It should arrive for about 2 weeks so stay put.

That's why is better to take the motherboard to a local electronics technician and he'll do all the nasty work.
