  • iPhone 4 Logic Board Replacement

    Be carefull of a very small component soldered near the yellow connector. It can pop off and make your front camera irresponsive.

  • iPhone 4 Logic Board Replacement

    This screw is supposed to tie into a very small nut that sits under a small u-shaped tab in the EMI shield that is fixed to the PCB. Maybe that nut has moved or got lost. I recommend you to lift that small tab to find it because if loose it could create a short-circuit.

    But that screw/nut is absolutely not essential to the LCD. It should work without it.

    It's probably the nut for the yellow screw of step 13. It sometimes comes off the motherboard, with no adverse effects. Just put it back, under the small u-shaped metal shielding
