    Good evening,

    I attempted to replace the wifi board on my device. Well, I managed to make things worse. I lifted to hard attempting to remove a cable and it, along with the clip, came off the board. Can this be reattached somehow? Attached are two photos. I circled in red the involuntary mutilation I performed.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    yes, it's repairable, if you have a replacement connector and know how to solder, if not - I can fix it for you (send me PM here or on ebay: http://goo.gl/DH4yO8)

    I got a bad connection fixed by testerfan, he's great. He had my device repaired and shipped back in a day. Def would go this route if you can't solder yourself.
