    Default [Advice] old school iPhone... be careful with replacement parts...

    my iphone was from old school 1.01...geohot hardware unlocked...
    and upgraded till 1.1.1

    unfortunately...
    one day I dropped it and the touch sensor crashed
    (the screen glass remained intact...damm resistant stuff they made!!!...)
    ...had to replace the whole set...
    ordered a new screen set from we love mac...
    looked pretty original with apple printed in cables and all parts...
    replaced...
    and all good...
    in few weeks the touch sensor started to fail....
    and also noticed that from the very beginning the proximity sensor was not working...
    (kept pressing mute, hold with my face.....)
    few days later....it stopped working at all....

    tried to fix it...
    reconnect all the xxxxx cables.....
    nothing...

    that's it...
    got a new iphone 1.1.2 waiting for software unlock....

    the idea of exchanging the whole board between the (old and bricked) to the new (1.1.2otb) is becoming very attractive...

    well...

    be careful with replacement parts...

    Just follow the guides on ifixit.com and use the tools they use. They are friggin experts on mac hardware. On the pics you can see, they opened their iPhone without any scatch.

    is the sim tray stuck?
    yeah the problem is that you have to start removing the sim tray before you open the back case(silver)
    you can easily open it using a proper tool like the one shown in the picture...the problem is that this things are pretty disposable...good for one opening only....
    or
    you can try nice and gentle with and swiss knife....
    actually I combine this two tools and is pretty easy and NO DAMAGE....

    You just need to go easy...all plastic parts marks and bends so easily...

    you have to pri it in proper places ...need help...
    study ifixit and ask me....
    be glad to help you...

    AH....
    sorry....
    about the stuck sim tray....

    you can easily pull it....using a paper clip...
    the secret is little forcing it to the sim card direction and pull it as a hook....

    usually proper sim card fits perfectly in the tray...and when you insert the clip and push it the tray pops out....
    had a similar problem when I was testing some china made 5 in 1 sim card...
    it got stuck....

    hope it helped...

    thanks for your reply.... it seems that I have a bricked phone...I see no way to pull out the sim tray...the next sim +Sim are blocked inside. If i pull to hard I'm sure I will damage the phone.

    Thanks anyway.

    Mindrunner, try putting some extra force when trying to remove the simtray, sometimes you really really need to use force to get it out, but it's possible.

    Tell me how it went

    Mindrunner,

    I Had the same exact problem with my StealthSIM. I even ordered Iphone opening toolkit. But then I red that u need to remove SIM tray before opening the back cover.
    I was trying for almost 5 days, fcuking frustrated... finally saw a video on youtube and it worked!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AONQ6vL6bpY

    What u need to do is:

    Take a paper clip, insert it as usual and press it, just like u will, at any other time while removing a sim.

    Then, bend an inch of the paper clip with a plyer and make it like a hook.

    Insert it inside, and pull it hard and quick. you tray will fly out of ur iPhone!

    All the best, Let me know if it works!!

    Cheers,
    Saurabh
