    Just completed the guide, three things to note:

    1) You don’t need to remove the battery if you are just changing the charging port board, it just pops out after the screws are out

    2) The rubber around the port just peels off, so if your replacement part didn’t come with it you can just move it over

    3) Remove the SD/SIM card tray before trying to disassemble the phone, or you will bust yours up like I did

I have managed to replace the charging port but now it shows Charging Port Temperatures Abnormalities Reminder which is loud and annoying to see every time. I also see that one of my sensors in the cpu-z program (thermal sensor pa_therm0) hitting a constant 75-84 degree centigrade and another sensor (chg_temp) hitting 65 constantly. Any help in regards to this manner?
