    can someone help me with how to fix my iPhone front camera, shutter won't open after I did a screen replacement. Seems like i broke off a resistor, I have seen posts in the past but none of them have been clear, They say to make a jumper but I don't know what to jump and how, or even what jumping means. Thanks!

    Yes not providing any helpful information, but when one makes comment like this

    sorry, you're working on something way over your head. No way you'd repair a surface mounted component. Even the corner store electronic repair shop would have a hard time.

    Your best bet is to get a new logic board at this point.

    Wow that phone looks like a mess, is it normal for that much rubbish to get inside from general use?

    But yeah new logic board
