Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Iphone 3G, #3 connecter

Using your step by step text and photos I had no problem taking  my nieces 3G Iphone apart. First problem  when I returned after a few days for the dried out period. I noticed someone had tampered with the LCD screen There were which looked like darker  moisture blotches  I wanted to see how much damage was done to check  the logic,etc, I assembled every thing to it's original state...except the  ribbon #3, I don't remember how it was when I seperated  display from the main... I tried many times but failed ,also your step on this.  says  a white tab, which isn't there  but a blk half moon shaped cover,,     Now is there any where on the web to  get a close up view and text to connect #3?       OK here's a long shot question and properly a impractical one at that..Before my niece has to go to replacing this LCD screen is there any way of repairing this myself,can it be take apart without destroying it?   NickyD

     Sorry, I get the two sites mixed up,  I used Ifixit's step by step. But doesn't give me a close uo of what the connecting  tabs of both ends look like and how it connects and yes I'm aware of Apples no coverage of watered  damaged iphones..And the many online stores of replacement parts. Just like a new car. I still need a key to start it.


         Again, I repeat, before buying a LCD replacement, I want to connect the damaged lcd to make sure that it's just the screen that's damaged...If it's also the logic board then my niece is better off by purchasing a new Iphone, Agree?  So I'm hoping someone out there will show me a close up,description on how to connect #3...nickyd

      In reply to this photo;




     This photo would be of big help, but as you see the resolution is set too high, therefor distorting the image..
      if this ribbon wasn't already out,maybe the white tab didn't lock or the ribbon wasn't inserted deep enough. I would of had a better up front view of  what it should look like. Now I have every thing back to it's original state except, trying to  insert 3 is like trying to stick a wet noodle into a ****'s mouth.4nicks1

Hi,

Got this great instructions from - www.rapidrepair.com.

Tools required:
Small Phillips Screw Driver

Remove the sim tray, use the included sim card removal tool (or a paper clip if you've lost the tool.)

Insert a small thin tool between the chrome ring and front panel glass directly above one of the screw holes. You will need to exert a small amount of pressure to separate the display from the back panel.

Lift the panel up from the dock end being careful not to tear or break any ribbons connected near the other end.

It sounds like you have some internal screen damage, your LCD may be damaged or your digitizer. A professional will need to take your phone apart and determine the cause.

Got unlocked iphone, tried to restore factory settings now its stuck on bitten pineapple...any help plz just got this phone?


Hi,
Here u can follow the steps

Step 1: Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of iTunes if you haven’t already. Download iTunes 8.2 from the link given below.
Step 2: Now connect your iPhone with your PC. You must connect it to a single usb port on the backside of your computer. Do not use any usb hub or the ports in the front as this could cause an error during update process.
Step 3: Start iTunes 8.2. Sync your iPhone with your PC so that iTunes backs-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.
Step 4: You will now have to download a custom cooked firmware for your iPhone version (2G or 3G). I can’t post the download links for these files for the reasons you all know very well. Just Google “iPhone 2G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 2G) or “iPhone 3G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 3G) and use one of the torrent links to download the custom created .ipsw file.
Step 5: Once you have downloaded the required .ipsw file, Copy/Paste it into this location:
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows 7)
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows Vista)
“C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Update\” (Windows XP)
Step 6: Restart iTunes. You will now be prompted to install this firmware you just download. Just close this prompt dialog by clicking on “x” from the top right-most corner of the window.

Step 7: Now you will have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 3.0 that you just downloaded. Click on your phone from the sidebar in iTunes to get to this screen as shown in the screenshot below:
capture2_thumb.png
Now press and hold left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.
2e_thumb.png
This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your downloaded custom firmware 3.0. Select the downloaded .ipsw file and click on “Open”.
Step 8: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps some of which are highlighted below:
asd.pngafasf.pngggg.png
Don’t do anything silly at this point. Just wait while iTunes installs the new firmware 3.0 on your iPhone. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully unlocked and jailbroken iPhone 2G. iPhone 3G on the hand will only be jailbroken, not unlocked. iPhone 3G users will have to wait for Dev-Team to release ultrasn0w on Cydia in order to unlock their phones.
Step 9: Once you are done with the unlocking and jailbreak process. You can now restore all your settings, apps, music, contacts and photos to the newly installed firmware version 3.0 by restoring the backup that you made in Step 3 from iTunes.

Feel free to ask me any question here should you run into any problem during the update process.

IPhone 3G Error 0xE8000001


I just had this problem and it turned out to be... It didn't like my iPod cable. Switched to the iPhone cable and it worked.
Seems to be an iPhone 2.0 prob, or 3g prob, since I was using the iPod cable to sync my old iPhone just fine.
