Default Solder more memory into 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm an engineer and been designing and manufacturing Wifi equipment for about 10 years. I'm not new to wireless comm but I am new to the BB. I just bought a 8830 world phone. I see that is doesn't have a lot of on board memory. Has anyone tried to replace the on board memory with a bigger memory IC? Hmmm.... I guess I should ask the experts if this is even possible. I'm a hacker and I'm willing to experiment on my 8830 if it's even possible. I'd appreciate some feedback on replacing the memory. If it's possible, I'll do the swap and post pics. Thanks.

I have always wondered if it is possible to increase the onboard memory. Phone processing is so much better with more memory.

However, I don't think RIM would make this possible. What I think they should do is allow the OS to use some of your SD memory (configurable by you) as system memory.

Since you are teh 1337 h4x0rz, how'd you end up posting (twice at that) in the wrong section?

It's not possible, and the main reason it will never be possible is that they opening a device's housing compromises its security.
