Can I desolder the Tegra 3 in my MCU1 and solder in a later version?

Calling all engineering folks -

The title says it all. Does anyone know if it is possible to desolder the Tegra 3 in an MCU1 and drop in a later Tegra chip? Does anyone know if they are pin/power compatible?

Ah. So the android build doesn’t include instruction sets for other processors? Guess it makes sense to slim down the software build.

still a bummer.
From everything I've read on the internet Tesla doesn't run Android, they use embedded Linux. Embedded world is not like a PC world where Windows or Linux come with many drivers for different chipsets and automatically detect on boot which ones should be loaded - in embedded you build your OS and drivers specifically for the hardware you are running it on.
