I went on ebay and bought a few "'''Micro USB B Female 5Pin SMT Socket Connectors'''" for about $5. I'm now in the process of soldering the new connector on. I find that the hardest things to do are: # getting and keeping the connector aligned while soldering # positioning it so the connector has a good connection with the motherboard. Don't be fooled into buying a new soldering iron with a smaller tip. Yes, it would make it easier but it is not really necessary unless your current soldering iron tip is a medieval sward. There are external chargers for the evo so charging is no longer an issue, the problem is I still want to be able to sync it with my computer.
