Questions about the Android platform on SuperUser are routinely migrated to Android, but apparently questions about modifying Android hardware are off-topic there.

So....are questions about modifying the hardware of Android devices on-topic on this site?

1 Answer 1


Generally... I don't think so.

Practically when we deal with 'modifying' hardware on SU, its generic, and involving fitting in a component the hardware is designed to do.

If you are going to have to pick up a soldering iron to 'modify' a component, I do believe its far out of our scope.

    Even if soldering etc. was allowed for PC components (which I generally see no problem with), we disallow questions about phones and electronic devices, so they're definitely off topic.
