I want physically remove or destroy the on-board flash RAM in my phone. My original Droid stopped working after accidentally smashing it against a table edge while in my pocket (backlight and keyboard lights come on, screen stays black, tried to blindly unlock phone, but it doesn't seem to be responding). Tried a power-X reset, but still nothing on the screen. I'm going to get it replaced by Asurion (still have the $50 deductable on my plan), but they say I have to return the phone. However, they said it does not have to be in working order. I have emails, passwords and whatnot on the phone, and I don't want to find out that they refurbed it with a new screen and sent it to someone without wiping it, so I want to destroy the onboard flash memory. What's the best way to do this without totally destroying the phone physically? If they want to re-use components to refurb other phones, I'm fine with that, I just don't want my private data out in the wild. How hard is it to disassemble the phone, find the flash RAM on the motherboard, and reassemble? I don't mind desoldering the chip(s) from the motherboard or scraping it off.
