It looks like those chips are like standard DDR2 ones?

Maybe we could solder on our own?

It Could be done... but not without special tools. And there is another problem. You'll need another serial EPROM with updated information about RAM size... That could be more of a problem than actually soldering new chips on board.

Maybe you could get 512MB RAM module for laptops (with 4 memory chips) and desolder RAM chips off and also the serial EPROM and then solder everything in the Apple TV.

Sounds like tons of fun :>

thats what i thought in a other post... the only thing about this type of ram its more compex. You should be able to swap thos u just need money... and the right tools. I would think this would work fine... perhaps a efi update after or something. The ram is not orig therefor u run the risk of saying... oh {censored} this wont work because this is the only type that works... funny thing is this is ddr2 chips.. but the @Tv is running at 455 ? or something, baseline ddr2 is 533. humm
