Hello guys,,

I was wondering if someone tried to upgrade similar Laptops internal eMMC to higher capacity?
instead of 32gb we use 128gb, will work???


Ref. Model for example: HP Stream - 14-ax001ne

We have laptop service too. IMHO it is possible but if you take "economic" point of view it doesn't make sense.

apparently:

from Google

upgrade emmc in laptop

this page https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/318473/Replacing+emmc+32Gb+with+128Gb+compatibility+socket

has a link that appears to show this exact operation:

As they say, The MoBo needs to support it. not sure how you would find that out as probably not a spec they would publish being the storage is not intended to user upgrade.

Hi,,

I saw those links HaQue,,, but i was having some doubt that's why i asked.
we always tell people "do not trust/believe those youtube videos" some Might be true & most of them are not"

ordered my 128 few days back to verify..

Thank you again :wink:

eMMC must be same bga type, e.g. BGA153, brand or size should not play the role in laptops as I dont think there is any RAM used from emcp chips.
Some protection could involve rmpb partition, depending on how vendor wants to prevent users from upgrading capacity - in that case it will be hard to get it to work.

I remember once I helped one customer with some lenovo laptop and emmc, and there was no big troubles to get it to work, sadly I forgot the details.

I already got 2 for testing (as mentioned before very cheap)... and ordered my 128gb (on the way) for testing

I don`t mind investing little for such a good deal in hand.
