Soldering iPad Mini Dock Connector Flex?

So while removing the motherboard from the iPad mini 1st generation, I damaged the dock connection on the motherboard. Slightly tore it to be exact.

I've tried using a regular soldering iron to remove the dock but that's not working at all.

What's the best way to perform this repair?

Get an expert to do it. Logic board soldering requires special tools, solder and lots and lots of practice. You can (if you haven't already) destroy multi-layer circuit boards easily with too much heat.

Not every project is a good DIY project, some require more training and materials than the average person possesses. At this point removal of the logic board and taking it to a computer/small electronics shop, as you found out (is a very advanced DIY project) but this will save some $ and allow you to participate in the repair.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
