Ok so l have a dead debug kit thanks to USPS. (it left in a box and returned in a bag)
Motherboard has too much damage to repair. I know you can convert a retail box to debug using a hacked kernal but I like to do things the hard way. Is it possible to convert a retail board to debug using hardware from my dead debug kit? If so what all needs swapped over?

not an expert on debug kits "never had one" but it must be easier to repair that rather than transplant things over right??

you have the bios "tsop".. prety sure that debugs have 128Mb ram..
and probably a bunch of other little bits and bobs.
are you sure its impossible to repair it?

I'm more of a software guy but I have to ask the obvious question: where's the picture of the motherboard so that somebody can help assess the damage and what can be salvaged?

The cpu heat sink came off and damaged the cpu when they dropped it. Im just going to look into flashing a retail to debug with a ram upgrade. Can anyone tell me were to start on this? Do I just place files on hdd and flash bios?

Ok got it figured out. Tsop flashed a debug kernel and used the recovery disk to rebuild hdd. Then added the extra ram to get 128mb. All is good again.
