The headphone jack on on my S4 active has become half operational. The microphone or controls are no longer functioning, however I still get music through the headphones, so I just have to use the touchscreen instead of the built in headphone controls.
After full dissasembly of the S4 Active, I discovered taht the headphone jack is integrated into the rear frame and thus was unable to replair the jack with the parts I ordered. I foolishly assumed that the jack was a singular component instead of integrated. After looking up a few more You tube videos on the S4 active, I discovered that the rear panel has multiple integrated parts, the speaker, headphone jack, and something else which escapes me at the moment. Therefore, the repair is still not complete, and I am just going to wait another month and upgrade my phone anyway....
make sure that you fully analyze your repair and make sure you get the right parts.
Headphone jack was cutting in and out frequently until it stopped working altogether.
Besides an issue with a single stripped screw and a little wear around the edges of the frame the repair went very well.
It's very difficult to be gentle when separating the mid frame so take your time.
