can someone tell me

or if you need a differnt picture also tell me

I never advocate jumpers. I figured the Apple engineers had a plan with all those parts. Replace them with proper components.It is a Zener diode and check st3v3w's schematic for the proper values.

I can't say whether or not it is safe to jump them with a wire but the part is called DZ30 and it has to do with the head phone jack . i belive it has something to do with an external mic.
