Mic2 thermalmonitord panic still thrown after flex cable replacement
I have a water-damaged iPhone 11 Pro Max A2161. Face ID stopped working immediately (shocker) and a few days later, the thermalmonitord boot loop started. I replaced the power flex cable with one from iFixit, no luck. I replaced the replacement cable with an original Apple donor one off eBay, no luck. 180 second panic cycles happen like clockwork. I used this and this iFixit question and this site as reference.
I don't own a microscope, but the pins on the connectors look good under a magnifying glass. I'm no electrical engineer, but I'll happily become one to save the phone. Does anyone have any suggestions on my next move?
Here's a Google Drive txt of the (abbreviated) panic log. Below is the magic bullet:
