If i remember rightly from a thread i glanced at a while ago, the note 3 internal memory is hard-wired (soldered) on the board...

Wow. You are adventurous. But no. The flash memory is ON the board. You would have to desolder and resolder it. Which is basically impossible on the scales that these devices are built. I don't think you can get to that data anymore....

EDIT: Unless your board is fine, in which case, I guess you could do a swap. But there is a more than good chance of destroying your new phone as well.
