Daughter smahsed pins in the dock connector.
Great. Took about an hour. Spudger was a must. Online repair guide was essential and nearly perfect in detail. The ribbon cable clamp that must be rotated up could have been illustrated or explained a bit better.
Also, what is the purpose of the "danger do not remove" sticker? If it's an electrical insulator as I suspect, folks may want to know. My sticker ripped badly; consequently I used a small peice of electrical tape to replace it just in case it was an insulator.
If it's an old device, replace the battery while you're in that deep.
