well looks like i have killed it, i can get into recovery mode and restore and i can get into dfu mode and restore but whatever i try i just wont boot past the apple logo. that will teach me to mess i suppose
They're a bugger to replace the back cover on aren't they.
The none OEM covers make life even more difficult, they're not the same depth as the proper Apple stuff.
The earpiece is one of the ribbon cables that you connect when you put the LCD assembly back on IIRC. The home button connection had me off, it's just a pressure connection when you place the assembly back in, with the depth being off, it was either home button connected or vibrating motor rubbing against the back of the LCD. Got it there in the end..
Next time, look out for somewhere selling the back assembly complete with all the switches, cables and a new battery already glued in..it makes life alot easier and it's only £5 or so more.
Figured out why it won't read he sim, when you push it it there is a small metal connection right at the bottom that when a sim is inserted in the holder breaks the contact. This new case is obviously slightly different and the sim tray won't break the contact, hence the no sim.
Anyway I have managed to break the small connection on the logic board that the earpiece and sensors connect too. Found a company that will put a new connection on the logic board for £40
Mum is well happy now though as she has been out and bought a 4 lol
