Ok… so this guide is incomplete based on the repair kit I purchased. There is a bag of seals that comes with the lightning connector assembly, and most are not show in the instructions.
I’m trying to figure out where they all go…. and I’ll try and update this as I do.
So.. my new lightning assembly had a yellow piece of plastic over the right microphone. Wasn’t sure if it was blocking the opening, so I removed it. Found a small hole in the plastic. Anyone else get one like that?
doubt it will affect it’s function, and since the old one was bad…. can’t be worse than it was before.
i’ll double back once it’s back together.
Both of the screws have blue loc-tite on them. Best to make sure you have the right screw driver for the job. Also, if you have the “iopener”, you can apply a little “heat”. That will loosen up the loc-tite.
May seem silly to say this…. however it might prevent some confusion for others.
my replacement screen had a screw that needed to be removed in order for the captive screw and home button cable to be secured.
