Awesome job on that connector. Not only did you remove it from the donor board without melting it, but you also soldered it back on. Bravo!

Please help… Im about to set my retina mini on fire….

I have replaced the digitizer twice, and both times I end up with a small column on the left side of the screen which is not responsive to touch input.
The first digitizer was a cheapy chinese one, the second was better quality (not gold tho, still silver edge), with smart cover sensor (1st one didnt even have this). After applying the magnets to 2nd digi, using tiny drop of CA glue, the problems started. Im 99% sure the same thing applies to the first digi as well but not 100%. So this is a conspiracy obviously. How the F can applying two little magnets screw up the touch functionality???
Now I could replace it AGAIN but I am scared that at some point, the fragile motherboard connectors are gonna wear out and when that happens this mini will be set on fire for sure.
So please please if you have any ideas I really appreciate it.

I can use the original digitizer in an emergency, but the home button does not function well, and I need to clean the inside of the digitizer, and have no clue how to do this without making it worse.


Isn't there a way to just tap the data directly from the memory?

… who gave thumb's down? Idiots. The amount of work, and the result is amazing. For 99% of us that was a totaled board heading to garbage bin.

excessi0n says:

Wow – you have incredible skill. Ever thought about training as a surgeon??

Nazalur A says:

An epic efforts – thank you so much for this video 🙂
It's so good, that an amount of patience you've told was about to end, appeared practically pretty much enough :))

…is there any at least theoretical chance, that this logic board can continue to live in another housing, still being an iPad?..
I'd love to see this device still working, after so much work on it 🙂

ArcadeGames says:

Wow, I would have taken one look at that thing and high tailed it out the door! Great job!

simonthechipmunkCC says:

Wow. If someone would have shown this to me and asked if it can be fixed I would probably have had a good laugh and then started to clobber said someone to death with the thing so he can never mutilate any electronics ever again. That you actually managed to get it to work again is downright incredible. Good job.

Dennis Lubert says:

Yeah, seen that, soldering with a blowtorch. No, seriously, people do that… its just like a very fast working hot air station…

andi n says:

You are simply awesome!

Sefa says:

Stephen Rimington says:

kakureru says:
