Power/Volume Controls Replacement Part OR where to short power pins?
Simply, I need to engage the power button for just a few minutes. So, I need the volume / power ribbon replacement part (can't find anywhere online that has it in stock) OR to find an open spot on the board etc that I can short to perform this function aside from the metal contacts on the button which are not conductive enough to work. The pot metal construction blows, FYI.
I've disassembled my IPT 2g with no problem and found that the power button is a piece of crap. It's still covered under warranty until Dec 24, so very few days left for repair considering the holiday rush. The problem is it's jailbroken, frozen at boot and I can't enter DFU to wipe that stupid "pwnapple" off the screen to bring it in to Apple. The power button is too flaky and barely triggers 1/7 times. I've been unable to figure what pins to cross to engage power. Anyone able to help? I don't want to cut the ribbon etc since this would ruin my warranty (and no, disassembly the way I did it won't cause warranty problems).
Cheers for any tips!
Is this a good question?
