  1. before separating the parts pay attention to the colours of the wires, which ones goes to which connector. Always a good idea to take a picture. On this apple USB cable (30-pin first generation to USB) it goes, left ro right, black,white,green,red.

  2. Cut the wires to expose enough coper to be able to solder them to the connectors. Try to get all four to the same length. Cut the wires to expose enough coper to be able to solder them to the connectors. Try to get all four to the same length.

  4. Proceed with the soldering. Very likely just heating up the solder that was in the connector will be enough to push the wire when is melted. Otherwise, just add a tiny bit more of solder on top. A pair of soldering helping hands is very useful for this kind of soldering. A pair of soldering helping hands is very useful for this kind of soldering.

  5. With a multimeter, check that the pads are not in contact, either from overflowing solder or from loose wires.

    • If there were any shorts, you might need to reheat the solder to make sure that stays within a single connector, or you might need to cut any wire that would be crossing from one connector to another.

Conclusion

It’s only marked as difficult because it requires to know how to solder. It’s a very easy soldering job though.
