I believe what your asking about is the flex cables for the power button, but I'm confused, because it's a guide for the Lightning dock

Those two are GPS and cellular diversity antenna connectors, if you tore them you have to desolder the GPS front end module and install a new one.

They are not flex cables, they're attached to the logic board and screw in at the top of the housing. Probably there for grounding.
