I have a question about removing the shields from the logic board. Should I attempt it or would most of the damage be done outside of the shielded area? I have read some things about them being removed and although it seems quite difficult I may get a different phone in the meantime and still attempt to fix this. Like I said though, I don't understand why the phone would work perfectly fine with the screen out of the frame and then when seated properly would just freeze. Has anyone every experienced this?
I'm having the same problem. Can't find any information that's actually useful. I did find out though that the iPhone has been opened before given that it had a sticker inside it which read 'happytel' I'm guessing this one may have been repaired for water damage. It's difficult to find solutions for these things. I'm going to try exchanging parts with another iPhone I have but don't have much hope.
