    The X button on my Shield Portable has now become prone to sticking. I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with handheld repairs that would be willing to offer their services to replace the a/b/x/y buttons on a Shield Portable. I like the XBox buttons. So I could send an XBox Controller to use as the replacement. Any takers?

    My Shield Portable's buttons only stick if I don't play it too often, but taking it apart and cleaning everything with 99% rubbing alcohol makes it work like new again.

    I can try my best to do so by checking out some youtube videos. would really prefer to change the buttons though, as the xbox buttons are much less "clicky". Shield buttons remind me too much of the PSP's.
