I would love steps to show not only pulling out the usb port, but also putting the new one in and re-assembly. Also maybe tips about things to avoid doing -- easy slip ups people make when doing it. Why replace just the usb port instead of the whole board assembly or instead of the entire bottom module? Thanks! Great pics

Anyone know how to bypass the "insert a supported module" error that comes up after changing the charging port?

Do you solve the problem? Can you help me, please?

I need to do this repair on my phone, but Rene's comment worries me. Does this error message come up often? Can it be fixed?

Hello. I have the same problem like Rene . I changed the usb port and when I try to power on my smartphone it shows me the picture that said “insert a supported module” like what Rene said earlier. Please, I need help.
