Default Gtab Memory

Hi Again,

I know this may sound like sacrilege, but has anyone taken apart a g-tab and replaced the memory chip ? 512 Mb may seem like enough memory to run on right now, but I kinda doubt this will hold true in a year or so. Having built many a pc over the years, this would be fairly simple. No ?

Cheers,

Lol. I think the 512 mb will hold through next but if you really want to try it...that's cool with me!

Here's a thread with pics of the Gtabs guts

If I recall correctly the memory is soldered directly onto the system board. Replacing that will take better than average soldering skills... especially if that's a multi-later board!
