Note that you have to transfer the shroud over the charge port from the old assembly to the new one, if the replacement part wasn’t supplied with it. This threw me when I was screwing the new unit in, until I inspected the old part more closely. Also, it takes a lot more effort than you would expect to undo the case in the first place!

How did you glue it on to the new board? Which glue did you use

Taking the cover off wasn’t the easiest, but after that it went really smooth. Thanks for the instructions! It really helped a lot! Got my tablet charging again, so I am satisfied!
