    Hey, hey! Good for you. :thumb: It always makes me happy to see a device rescued from either the scrap heap, or an expensive repair bill.

    It can be done. But I would certainly wish I was working on another phone.
    But I can say I encourage everyone to follow in your steps of holding off to buy any tech until it has proven itself and to also look into other brands and give them a try

    I've never done this on a phone but I have torn down a Canon DSLR to convert it to infrared. Always do the disassembly/assembly on a towel, it keeps those little bastards from skittering away from you and being sucked into a parallel universe when they hit the kitchen floor, never to be found again...

    Out of excitement, I forgot to return two main screws lol I’ll do it now. Thank you Simon!

    I honestly never thought of it. I’ve always thought it’s a complicated job and requires a skillful person to do it. It turned out easy I’d you have the courage :) I’m a bit hesitant to fix my main phone as it has lateral bumps which could make the job harder.
    lol
    I almost lost several screws. Thankfully I thought of working on a soft surface before hand.

    Well done Omar! I have an iPhone 5S that needs some help with the fingerprint sensor cable. I’ve been meaning to fix it for a while. It’s just a poor design on the connector to the motherboard and needs a bit of padding out to keep it in place.
    It’s just such a pia getting in the mindset to fix it especially as I need a bench magnifier to see anything these days.
    I might post it to you to do for me! :D

    And now, back to polishing the turd that is my playing...2 days until Euroguestock 4.5!!!

    Thank you Stuart! It looks like an easy job. Send it my way along with new button/sensor assembly, I'll repair it for you for 0.0 + VAT ;)

    FWIW, I'm still rocking a 5 and waiting for a replacement worth upgrading too. :sneaky: Would rather spend money on guitars and amps. :)

    That’s me and my 6s. New battery, no real advantage to upgrading.

    iPhone X was a failure, that’s why they came up with three new devices.

    Not only do I not care about facial recognition, but I'd prefer not to have it.

    While we're on the self-help trail, you're welcome to bring your MacBook on Saturday, if you still have it. I won't have the time or tools to fix it on the spot, but I repaired Hazel's MacBook Air twice, so I'd think there's a reasonable chance I could fix yours.

    :( I'm sorry to hear that. Currently investigating multitrack on iPad but suspect drive capacity may be a major limitation.
