Answer to "PCIe SSD on Mini Late 2014"To do this job, sourcing the SSD screw is the hardest part and it's a custom Apple part. I got M2 x 4mm T4 flat head screw and the head is too small. So used the head off a stainless steel rivet to make the screw head bigger. Screws for the the clamp plate are M1.4 x 2.5mm (2mm for standoff + thickness of clamp plate). I got a box of assorted small screws for eyeglasses - have philips heads. I had some 0.8 mm aluminium plate to make a custom part 16x14mm. Drill 2 x 1.5mm holes 9mm apart 2mm from the edge. Thin foam rubber pad under the plate. All done.
Answer to "3Gs earpiece does not work, proximity sensor works."Replacing the #3 cable is rather tricky and I didn't manage to find a good description. So having done it, here is what I did: (1) Note the number 3 cable is held down by a piece of metal which is folded over to make 3 clips. Google "iPhone 3G Proximity Sensor Cable" to see pictures of the cable and the metal cover with 3 bent metal clips (2) use a fine pointed bent metal probe tool to unhook the metal clips. (3) ( I used http://www.mendapump.com/MendaCatalog/To... and http://www.mendapump.com/MendaCatalog/To... This is tricky but doable and a lot easier than removing the glass to get to the clips as I saw on one YouTube video.
Answer to "Why MacBook Pro freezes on installation?"Worth reading this thread (at least a few pages at the start and a few at the end). Heat has some role. I think it's a symptom of system software corruption but others think it's bad thermal paste. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa...
