Very broken iPhone 5. Any hope?

Hi.

There was someone who asked me if I could look at there broken iPhone. To see if there is any hope for it :p

It looks like this:

And it have several torn off flex cables (all at the top :p)

The phone works fine after all, but my question is if this cable (attached where the picture shows, and on the logic board) can be replaced or fixed? :

alex, it looks like the "cellular Interconnection Flex, cable that broke. You can get it from places like this as well as from here. Of course, depending on some more images to absolutely verify this. Hope this helps, good luck.

Alex,

It looks like it possibly goes to the camera and the flash, and maybe to the vibrating motors.

maybe the link here.
