I took apart my iphone 3g to change the battery but now when i go to put it back together the flex cable for the camera seems to be getting in the way and the motherboard won't fit properly. Does anyone have any tips of how to get it to fit back in properly?

Yes, look at my guide in the guide section on how to put the phone back together:

There is a littl metal tab coming off the bezel on the upper right hand corner under the camera holder that needs to be under the mainboard. There is also a small plastic tab on the right side of the headphone jack that the mainboard needs to slide under.

okay thanks I got it back together but now I have a new problem. It is all put back together with the old battery but now when I plug it into my computer it just shows the dead battery with the lightning bolt and nothing happens and I cant boot it. Think I may have damaged the flex cable or something?
