[* black] Re-installing connector 7 can be problematic. This connector brings RF from the antenna to the mother board and if it is not properly installed then you will get weak or possibly no signal at all.
[* black] The flexible ribbon is trying to pull the connector apart so that if it doesn't clip in securely then it may just not stay connected.
[* black] I added a piece of double-sided foam tape over the connector to help stabilise it. If the tape is thick enough then when the screen unit is assembled to the phone then the tape will be compressed a little which should keep the connector in place.
