How I Made My Own iPhone - in China

I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works!
How much did it cost? Answer here: seworld.info/will/Y4PZyLaojqF93KM/video
I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them.
So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.

  • To the person who is reading this, you are very precious and valuable even if you don't feel so. Jesus loves you ❤️ He paid a price on the cross for you. He rose again on the third day and defeated death. He took the punishment for our sins, in our place. He did this out of his inconceivable love for us. He can revive your situation no matter how messed up it is. Don't end your life at any point. There is hope in Jesus. He is able to deliver you from sins. He is able to take away your depression, loneliness and suicidal thoughts etc., He is able to heal your sickness and disease. You just have to humble yourself and call out to him "wholeheartedly" and he will answer you. He set me free from porn addiction and masturbation in 2018 which I struggled with for almost 10 years. He saved me from three death traps. He changed my lustful heart. He can transform your life if you let him. You just have to repent from your sins and transfer your trust from yourself to Jesus. He is able to give you peace which surpasses all understanding, even in the midst of trials and tribulations. Fear won't grip you anymore because you will receive the assurance of eternal life when you believe in Jesus. He is the only way to heaven. He paid our fine by shedding his sinless blood for our sins. We sin through our thoughts, words and actions. The shed blood of Jesus will cleanse us from all our sins if we confess our sins to Jesus and repent from it. Our good works cannot get us to heaven. Those are like a bribe to the judge of the universe. This is a very serious thing. We never know when our last minute on earth is. It could be any second, hour or day from now and if we don't have forgiveness for our sins, we will end up in Hell. We cannot take our money, riches or fame with us when we die. It is appointed for men once to die and after this the judgment. We have to give an account of our life to God. We only have a chance to repent till we are alive on this earth. This decision which we make in this present life will decide where we spend our eternity. Please think about this. Don't let pride stop you from knowing the truth. I was prideful before and rebelled against the living God and forsook the truth just because I didn't want to lose. If you humble yourself and call on to Jesus from wherever you are and ask him "sincerely" if all these things are true, he will reveal it to you. He will open your heart to the truth. You can experience him personally if you try it. Jesus is coming soon. If we have not repented from our sins and turned to him, we will end up in hell. This is not a religion. This is a relationship with God. I am telling all this because I care for you. Even though I don't know you personally, I know that your soul is extremely precious to God. The reason I am posting it here is because we never know when our last moments are. It could be anytime from now and I don't want you to end up in hell. Jesus is the only one who can save you from your sins and grant you everlasting life, after life on earth ends. May Jesus reveal himself to you. God bless you. Take care.
