dandan422 the second green circle is C5_RF (below the "blue coil") and is a 3.0 PF +/-0.05PF 25 V capacitor in a 0201 package. If it does not work because you just replaced it with another capacitor of different value, replace the capacitor with the right one.

sorry but I'm confuse about the value, is it " .0pf " dot zero ? Maybe i get a damaged board to remove that... i have another trouble... signal of wifi is just a bit lower, works but my friend have same 4s and mine is not stronger as his 4s... replaced antenna and got better but not as i expect, replacing chip can solve or it is passive component issue ? i dropped mine to the floor many times... =(


do you have schematic for antenna too ? because in some old antenna 3g and wifi i have some capacitors too... i believe is the same due to application... can you check please ?


Proper value for C5_RF is 3.0PF. not sure what other chip you want to replace.
