Black paste under emi shield
Hello, can't seem to find any information about this, so hopefully someone can help me.
A friend of mine washed her iPhone 6 in the washing machine. I've got an ultrasonic tank and some PCB cleaning solution so hopefully have some chance at repair.
When removing the emi shield from the a8 processor, there is a large amount of black paste under it. Just wondering if anyone knew what to replace this with when refitting, or should i not have removed it in the first place? I'm assuming it's there to dissipate heat, so do not really want to try it without!
Any help is greatly received.
Is this a good question?
