Now my boss knows what a spudger is.
hard drive corruption - have heard hd data cables in this model are sometimes faulty, and wanted to make sure the customer wouldn't be coming back soon due to any possible hardware faults (and optical drive choked on a disk after behaving badly for a while)
The guides are great. It went smoothly and quickly with one exception - swapping hard drive, hd cable and optical drive could have been done within 1/2 hour I think, had I not hit snag mentioned in "The Enlightenment..."
step 5 of optical drive replacement for unibody 13" - I'm not sure how to improve the wording, but would ask of someone who might know 'how do you slide a part that is glued?' and 'in what direction should it slide?' I fought a bit with this in disconnecting the camera connector - and considerably more connecting it back. Or perhaps a better pic?
