    What part of the logic board stores the photos and data on iPhone 3G. The top half or bottom half of the logic board? My logic board is broke and has been smashed into pieces. Any chances of saving the data

    Slim and none and slim just left town! You would need a data forensic scientist to retrieve from the fragmented board. HOWEVER don't you have an iCloud or iTunes backup? And if not WHY THE HECK NOT!!!!!!!! Lesson learned!

    I do but not recently. Not sure I even have all the pieces. Would they be able to recover something if you don't have all the pieces

    Even if you had all the pieces - you likely could not afford the cost of forensic recovery from parts...

    While not 100% it's extremely likely that it's safe, as KCH pointed out its VERY expensive to retrieve data from a damaged board. It's usually only done by big companies that can afford it and have critical data they need, and police/authorities when doing investigations. So unless you are under investigation for something you are probably fine.

    Anyone that could crack a smashed iPhone doesn't care about your identity ...

    Why is this even posted under iOS 8? Can the iPhone 3G even run iOS 8?
