    Hi, I know Playbook is long dead in the software department but i wish to use the full potential of my playbook, so i need to replace the motherboard because the usb is broke, i have been looking on ebay, but there are 32gb motherboards, and 16 gb motherboards, i dont know if those motherboards mean that the are taken from 16 and 32gb models respectively, but they will work with my 64gb playbook?

    I don't know where you're located, but you can buy a used playbook for as low as $25 in my area. No point trying to replace the motherboard. Just get another one.

    As far as I know, the flash memory is soldered to the board, so if you're swapping them you'll end up with a 32GB PlayBook.

    I can confirm that Thurask is correct. The memory is soldered on the board, so you'll end up with a 16 or 32.

    Is the USB port visually broken or just not working?

    There was a video showing how to replace the USB port....

    I know I looked into it with one of my PlayBooks as I assumed an Ebay sold PlayBook would not qualify for the warranty. End up calling and the replaced it just like they need my original PlayBook. (design flaw.... thing they assumed no one would use the USB for Charging...)
