    So I like many other people have a ps3 console with that stupid tab that has broken, and unlike others, i did not break mine.
    I digress.

    Has anyone tried to solder wires from the motherboard itself to either the Bluray daughterboard and or the ribbon cable?
    I ask as this is what I will be doing soon, and wasnt sure if anyone had done so before. Wanted to know if there was a way to go about doing this. Not sure what to search via google if such a thing has been attempted. but will give it a go anyway.

    I know that there are LOADS of tiny connectors that will need connecting, but i have faith i should be able to do it in the end. and assuming the connectors themselves are currently intact and in working order, it should be up and running soon enough.
