Rev.b 9400m Logic Board in rev.a MacBook Air?

Has anyone successfully done this? From what I can see, the only real difference is the hard drive connector (SATA) and a slightly modified heatsink.

There are a few differences to account for:

  • The multitouch cable connector on the upper case has been relocated in the Rev.b machines, which makes connection difficult.
  • The black shielding on the lower case is slightly different. This may or may not affect compatibility.
  • The audio board is not compatible between models. You would need the correct audio board and cable for the appropriate logic board.
  • The hard drive connector, as you noted, is different and must be worked around.
  • The fan/heat sink are 2 separate pieces in Rev.b.
  • The airport/bluetooth cable is slightly different as well.

I haven't actually performed the swap; these are just the physical differences.

Good luck!

Re. multitouch cable.. Difficult to the point of it being impossible?

Also, seems strange the audio board would not be compataible, wouldn't it be software (ie OSX) that determines that?
