Hi, I'm Scotty from Strange Parts. I make videos about ridiculous technology adventures, including assembling my own iPhone in China and adding a working headphone jack to an iPhone 7. AMA!
Hi there Redditors - Scotty from Strange Parts here.
You might know me as the guy who assembled his own iPhone 6s from parts bought in the electronics markets in Shenzhen, China: https://youtu.be/leFuF-zoVzA
I just added a working headphone jack to an iPhone 7: https://youtu.be/utfbE3_uAMA
Thanks for all the amazing support - Reddit was super instrumental in getting out the word on both of the videos I've made, and I've really enjoyed all the questions and ideas you've sent my way.
I'm in China at the moment, so timezones suck, but I'll be around for the next few hours answering as many questions as I can about Shenzhen, the electronics markets, iPhones, and whatever else you want to hear about.
Lastly - I'll be doing a youtube live video Q&A today at around 3pm Eastern, 12pm Pacific. Subscribe to the youtube channel here to get notified when it goes live, and when I post future videos: http://strangeparts.com/subscribe

Edit: I'm going to take a break to do some live Q&A on youtube: http://youtube.com/strangeparts. But I'll be back here after to answer more questions.
Edit 2: I'm back! Thanks to everyone that tuned in for the youtube Q&A - sorry it was a bit rough getting going. The internet in China is challenging at times. It's pretty late here (5am), but I'll try and answer a few more questions before I crash for the night.
Edit 3: Thanks for all the questions everyone - I'm going to have to crash for a couple hours, but will try and check in and answer more questions in the morning. Good night from Shenzhen!
Edit 4: I'm back - I'll be popping in and out and answering questions as I take care of a few other things. So if you have any more burning questions, fire away.
