Correct cable for SCPH-79003 power/reset?

I need to replace the cable and I've been looking for one online....

Will this cable work when trimmed down to 8pin? : http://amzn.to/2xK7EVU

I bought this one from eBay which works but turned out being too short in length : http://ebay.eu/2hC1z9G

thanks for any help.

@tonictinsk apparently there are a few version of the cable out there. This one is the long version for the SCPH-79001 version which will also work with the European SCPH-79003 version.

It is possible that the first cable would work if you trim it, but I'd be careful with that since you do not know if any wires are crossing etc You will need to know the spacing between the wires to fit your connector. You can of course always try it out and let us know if it worked. You'd only be out a few £

there are so many different types it's really confusing! I came across a video http://bit.ly/2hEJp7f showing essentially what i'll be attempting with the cable i found on amazon, but as you mentioned...I hope it has the correct spacing and length. I'll find out tomorrow when it arrives.

Thank you for helping!

@oldturkey03 can confirm first cable works after trimming it down! very relieved as it required a lot of patience. The cable is quite long aswell so had to tape it down.
