Upgrading a 2020 Community Edition Pinephone?
(03-02-2022, 09:39 PM)danimations Wrote: I bought a Community Edition Pinephone back in 2020 and would like to upgrade it to the 3GB RAM, 128 GB eMMC board. Is that practical/possible to do myself, or would I do better to buy a new, complete Pinephone with these specifications instead? I enjoy simple DIY computing/electronics projects.

Thanks in advance.  Big Grin

128 GB emmc, did you mean 32GB? https://pine64.com/product/pinephone-com...mainboard/

you didn't tell what hardware revision you have.

my guess is you are better off with new one. however, because no soldering is not involved, it's somewhat easy to replace mainboard. you need correct screwdriver and remember esd electricity.

when i soldered mainboard 1.2a into 1.2b . just removing tiny resistor was super difficult.
