Use this guide to replace the dock connector assembly, which includes the dock connector and lower microphone.

    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Your phone's rear cover may have two #000 Phillips screws or Apple's 5-Point "Pentalobe" screws. Check which screws you have, and ensure you also have the correct screwdriver in order to remove them.

    • Remove the two 3.6 mm Pentalobe or Phillips #000 screws next to the dock connector.

    • Push the rear panel toward the top edge of the iPhone.

    • The panel will move about 2 mm.

  3. iPhone 4 Verizon Dock Connector Replacement: passo 3, imagem 1 %32
    • Pinch the rear panel with your fingers, and lift it away from the iPhone. Alternatively, use a Small Suction Cup .

    • Be careful not to damage the plastic clips attached to the rear panel.

    • Remove the single 1.5 mm Phillips screw securing the battery connector to the logic board (if present).

  5. iPhone 4 Verizon Dock Connector Replacement: passo 5, imagem 1 %32
    • Use the edge of a plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board.

    • Be very careful to only pry up on the battery connector and not the socket on the logic board. If you pry up on the logic board socket, you may break it entirely.

    • Remove the metal clip covering the antenna connector.

    • Pull up on the exposed clear plastic tab to peel the battery off the adhesive securing it to the iPhone.

    • If the tab breaks before the battery is freed, apply a few drops of high concentration (over 90%) isopropyl alcohol under the edge of the battery. Wait about one minute for the alcohol solution to weaken the adhesive. Carefully slide a spudger under the battery tab to release the adhesive.

    • Prying in other places may cause damage. Don't try to forcefully lever the battery out. If needed, apply a few more drops of alcohol to further weaken the adhesive. Never deform or puncture the battery with your pry tool.

    • If there's any alcohol solution remaining in the phone, carefully wipe it off or allow it to air dry before installing your new battery.

    • Remove the battery.

    • If your replacement battery came in a plastic sleeve, remove it before installation by pulling it away from the the ribbon cable.

    • Before reassembly, clean metal-to-metal contact points with a de-greaser such as windex. The oils from your fingers have the potential to cause wireless interference issues.

    • Perform a hard reset after reassembly. This can prevent several issues and simplify troubleshooting.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to lift the speaker enclosure assembly out of the case, being sure not to damage the EMI fingers on the attached Wi-Fi antenna.

    • Remove the speaker enclosure assembly.

    • Before reinstalling the speaker enclosure assembly's screws, be sure the Wi-Fi grounding fingers are installed below the lip in the iPhone's metal case as seen in the third picture.

    • Before reassembly, be sure to clean all metal-to-metal contact points between the grounding fingers of the Wi-Fi antenna and the case of the iPhone with a de-greaser such as windex or isopropyl alcohol. The oils on your fingers have the potential to cause wireless interference issues.

So I attempted once to fix the dock connector and failed. A month later I took the phone apart again. The first thing I noticed when taking off the dock connector from the logic board is that it wasn't seated properly. I attached it properly and now the iPhone charges and home button works perfectly!

What about it was not seated properly? any specific contact point? was it not screwed in well if it wasn't seated properly? I just replaced on a friends 4, but it has not turned on yet, and I can't figure it out. It just stopped charging one day so I figured it was a bad port from corrosion or something and replaced it. The swap was easy enough so I'm confused as to why it isn't turning on yet.

Great instructions. Easy to follow. I found that a JIS000 bit worked better than a phillips #00 bit on my Verizon iPhone 4, model A1349.

New part from IFixit works great. Some tips from my installation:

- PH000 screwdriver works well, but takes some finesse. A little pressure to get the screw going, and don't try to over tighten on the way back in. If you happen to round one out, a 00 or 0 PH screwdriver might get enough bite to get it going.

- Plastic pieces are covering the adhesive on numerous parts of the new dock connector. These are to be removed prior to installation.

- Battery does not have to be removed, so I avoided the risk of breaking something else.

I completed this guide, but unfortunately my phone is in no better shape than it was before the dock replacement. Apparently, this was not the problem. The device won't restore in iTunes. It just sits with the Apple logo and an empty status bar on the screen. Now when I unplug it from the computer, I get a black screen, with just a touch of backlight, but no display otherwise. Before the dock replacement, it always said "Connect to iTunes" but would not restore either. Any thoughts on what else I could try now?
