Very difficult

Mijn probleem

In the process of replacing a malfunctioning digitizer screen on my iPad, I was not careful enough and broke the cable of the Wifi antenna while trying to remove the screen. I needed to fix it and I was sure that iFixit would have the repair guide. Sure it did.

Mijn oplossing

iFixit repair guide does the repair in 55 steps, which seemed to me a daunting task. Before starting the repair I wanted to have the repair guide at hand, but by mistake, instead of finding it at iFixit website, I searched for it on YouTube. I found a repair guide which I thought was of iFixit (it wasn't), does the same repair with much less steps, essentially, only removing very few components. The repair was fast and simple, it went well, the new WIFI antenna purchased from iFixit works perfectly.

Mijn advies

I will be eternally grateful to iFixit, for posting so many very useful and educative videos and tutorials. Using iFixit guides I have done several repairs, like replacing the LCD screen of my MacBook Pro, replacing twice the digitizer screen of my iPad2, mounting a second HDD on my MacBook Pro. However, the Wifi antenna repair guide, in my opinion is too long and complex, essentially proposing to remove all components from an iPad, when there is a much simpler way of doing it.

Perhaps, it would be a good idea to update this tutorial.
