    I dropped my Galaxy Nexus i515 and cracked the screen and digitizer. There are files that I'd like to grab off of the phone. My brother has the same phone. I was wondering what the least amount of components I can transfer over to his phone so I can borrow his working screen. I was thinking just the piece that holds the SIM card and memory module. I want to mess with his phone as little as possible. Thanks.

    You don't need to mess with the memory module. Just open both cases and swap his digitizer/screen to yours, xfer whatever files you need, and then swap the screen back to his. That should be the easiest fix.

    This video shows how to disassemble the Gnex (for swapping the USB port).
