I'd rather try everything not to have to replace the motherboard. Cause like I said earlier: If there's any possibility to save the phone like it was when it crashed, so with messages/settings/apps etc. it's better offcourse... Or is it when I remove/replace this capacitor all will be lost also?

I'm going to visit the local store this afternoon to see what they have to say about it... But there's no warranty on this phone anymore so I guess fixing will be (too) expensive.

First went to local mobile phone store, only thing they did was putting the phone on a charger and say: Can't be fixed. Then I went to the repair store and they said that only looking at it what the problem could be would cost 30,-, and they couldn't guarantee that the problem would be solved then so...?

This friday I will visit a repair store in another town.. See what they have to say about it.
Just for the record: If the USB Jig method works, do I lose my data after all?

I got a USB-Jig and tried to get the phone into download mode, but it didn't work. Are there any other solutions left?
