    Default iPhone 5 Headphone Jack not working
    Ok I can't figure this one out so I'm asking the collective knowledge of my buddies here. About a week ago my headphone jack stopped working. I assume it was after I swapped the frame to a green one but I'm not quite positive. So here's what I've done so far:

    1. Took apart and checked connections, all good.
    2. Replaced headphone jack assembly with a brand new part, no change.
    3. Replaced headphone jack assembly with a known working part from another phone, however, the "non-working" jack works in that other phone.
    4. Re-cleaned connection areas, no change.
    5. Swapped to a new frame, no change.
    6. Booted iPhone into safe mode, no change.

    Everything else on the assembly (home button, speaker, lightning connector) works perfectly fine aside from the headphone jack. So it's obviously something to do with the board in particular (which sucks because it's my personal 64gb). Just wanted to ask if anyone had any ideas before I tried restoring (which I REALLY don't want to do) or throwing back into the original frame and everything and shooting up to an apple store to try and get it replaced. I'm also heavily jailbroken so I thought it could be one of the tweaks (hence the booting into safe mode) but that didn't change anything.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Does it recognize when you plug something in? Can you turn the volume up and it say "Headphone"

    I know you already said.. but I gotta ask.

    Everything else works good?

    Loud speaker, microphone, ear speaker, etc

    Does the volume up and down work normally? Does it say the correct thing on the screen when you use the volume up/down?

    Yeah. That's why I'm leaning to software related. I'm going to hold off and think about it for a few more days to see if I can figure it out. After that ill restore if no one has any other suggestions.

    Well I did a semirestore using iLEX with no change. Headphone jack still doesn't work. Looks like the next step is a full restore to 6.1.4 and then to the Apple store (rhyming not intended, but awesome anyway). Now I have absolutely nothing on my phone lol. It's like a brand new phone that I instantly jailbroke before syncing with a backup. TBH I'm not sure how good the restore was in the first place. It took maybe 3 minutes to delete EVERYTHING off of my phone. I had around 50gb worth of stuff on there. Doesn't seem right to me. Anyway. Here's hoping to a 6.1.4 jailbreak in the future haha.
