06-28-2009, 04:48 PM #1Looking for a Headphone Flex Cable replacement tutorial
Recently, my lock button/vibrate switch/headphone jack/volume knobs have all stopped working. None of them are jammed or anything, I just believe that the flex cable is dead.
I ordered a new one for my 3G...but the only problem is I can't find a tutorial online. I have experience with stuff like this since i'm an engineer, but I would reaaaally like if someone could either help me out or post a tutorial.

ifixit.com has some guides for disassembling the iphone. Once it's opened (IMO) its pretty straight forward.

Well, with all the godlike rumors i've heard of you, cpjr, i'm sure, IYO, that it is straight forward =P

Alright, so the piece came, I opened my phone, and got to work.
I followed that guide all the way through, but at the end it doesn't say anything about how to put in the replacement flex cable. I took off the all of the components from the previous flexcable and put them on the new one except for the headphone jack; there's no adhesive to attach the 2 sensors to it. My previous one, however, had this done.
I'm stuck cpjr! save me!
