Turning a broken iPhone into a working USB flash drive? – in Shenzhen, China

I took the flash memory chips from a broken iPhone 6 and turned it into a working USB flash drive in the electronics markets in Huaqiangbei in Shenzhen, China. I ran across the bare circuit board to do this during my previous iPhone storage upgrade video, and I just had to try it.

Some solder flux is not 100% insulated, so it would be safer to clean it up before powering the board.
