Actually on the evo lte it is! The internal memory module IS NOT on the motherboard in this case. It's actually separate and runs through one of the ribbons to the motherboard to interface with it. I just found out after switching my motherboard over to a whole different phone, all my files were gone but the phone apps, setting, etc were all mine. I switch back to my old screen and all other items that were separate to the mobo and all my files came back! If you find another motherboard and implant it in your phone you should be good!
