- Are you using a new mid frame or the old one? Is it possible that the gasket got under the glass? If using a new one it might not fit right (common with aftermarket). It could be adhesive too. The free stuff I got rid of 9 months ago because it wouldn't bond to glass. Pink adhesive is the best (not sure about orange). The pink is a tesa product and bonds instantly.
- Try to put the powe/volume flex into place without removing the whole board. Start with the sleep button and move to the volume keys. Screw it in place before the soldering. This will help get it in place and avoid additional risk of tearing the cable while putting the logic board back in place. Hope this finds you in time !
- You will need a new display. I would also use a non glue adhesive to avoid getting it in places it doesn't belong (the glue).
- The only thing it can be is the alignment of the tab that inserts into the outer switch. If it's off ever so slightly it will do this. That's the worst part (in my opinion) to remove and put back. Good luck
- No. The 4s has the CDMA version of bezel (iPhone 4) plus a sim trey. Effectively making it a world phone and keeping cool color options at bay (not eBay!). Unless you can powder coat it will be a little time before red is available.
- Assuming you have conditions that old turkey speaks of you will need to replace the headphone jack. There is a guide for that :-) the repair is not an easy one or one for a novice. Good luck
- You probably need a new screen. Depending upon where the dent is, you may have damaged the component the digitizer plugs into. In that case the repair becomes out of reach for most but can be done by replacing the motherboard flex cable. In your case spend $15 on a new screen and start there. Good luck
- The dock assembly is likely bad and needs to be cleaned or replaced. You may also have corrosion that needs to be cleaned with isopropyl (>90%). These are the two likely solutions, however, if corrosion is real bad the resistors by the dock connection could have been fried (less likely). Hope this helps.
- First I would check to make sure the dock assembly is connected properly and is sitting right on the logic board. Also check if it is getting an antenna signal and home button working. If those check out you may want to look for pins missing in the dock or other debris causing an obstruction. The cord you are using could be defective (if using the same cord). I don't think it would be the battery in this case because iTunes isn't recognizing either.
- If you do use the flathead make sure to insert between the metal frame and rubber gasket, and not touching the glass at all. Once the metal touches the glass it's *crack* (think comic book "pow" type here). I find the small metal spudger from ifixit to work best. No nicks, bends, etc. perfect open almost every time. Some frames will break and some glass will break. It's just the nature of this repair. It is not unreasonable to get in without breaking 95% of time with some practice (although a good level would be any not broken - this is not easy so don't get down)
