    What is the name of the board that the Power Flex Cable plugs into and can it be replaced? I think I broke the socket on this board trying to remove the old flex cable with all that tape around it. The copper that makes a rectangle around the socket has a small gap in the copper. I have ordered a new power flex cable and wont be able to test it until it arrives, but I have a feeling I'm going to need to replace that board.

    Here is a picture of the socket and the board that will need to be replaced (not sure what the name of the board is though):

    Hi Mike, hiya doin. Hope you can guide me through. I broke my iPad 2s power flex cable and I also need replace it. I was looking for tutorials online but there seems to be no videos about the procedure. I ordered a replacement cable but I don't want to be in the same situation. Would you tell me what you did wrong?
    I would really appreciate anything you can suggest to prevent me from breaking the circuit board. Have a great day!

    It's called the WiFi Sensor PCB. It has the accelerometers and connection for your power, volume, rear camera and WiFi sensor (though not the WiFi antennae oddly enough).
