    I have a samsung galaxy s4 zoom with a dead motherboard and i was thinking about repairing it. I found a used motherboard on aliexpress for about 20$ but before i buy it i want to ask a few questions. 1) If i change the motherboard will i have to install an android version right after the swap? 2)If the new motherboard is from a used locked phone it will be locked even on my phone? 3)If the new motherboard is from a country that have different gsm provider's 3g bands than my country, will it work on my gsm provider?

    1) That depends on whether Android is installed on it or not. After all, it's used, so who can tell?

    2) Yes. And it will be useless to you.

    3) No.

    Thank you very much for your help. Let me ask you one last question. My galaxy s4 zoom had a bootload loop problem and in samsung official repairing center told me that the only way to fix the problem is to swap the motherboard. After two weeks of no use at all, now my phone doesn't turn on at all. If I change the motherboard (and the new motherboard is fully working so as the battery), will the phone be 100% working?
