My Problem

dock connector got wet - external speaker would not work - but blue tooth worked if USB cable was plugged in.

WHY did I fix it - because Apple annoyed me. Telling me I needed a new phone when I could reason out the problem was only the dock connector

My Fix

The repair went great (that was fun)

The liberation tool (5 point head) only worked for 1 screw so I made a driver out of a eye glasses screw driver ( an idea from someone at Ifixit)

I used Duct tape to keep the screws safe and in the location they came from

My Advice

the guide cover everything.

but the duct tape was my best idea
