I will be starting this project tonight. My tab A is paid for and been with me for a long time. The plastic inside the port broke first, I was lucky in all the pins stayed in place so I got a few more charges to play and get all my files backed up before two of the pins broke and now it's no more then a paper waight. I didn't buy anything off ebay and plan to just take the parts off another device. I'm also looking into if I can change it to a type C rather then oem type B. I'll record it and post it on YouTube if it's successful but will let you know my findings either way. I have replaced ports on other phones before and also am an active drone pilot so I do decent soldering and have a basic knowledge and experience level with chips and wires that this should not be impossible for me to do. I love my tabA and will take every precaution.
