Hi all,

I almost perfectly repaired my HTC One M7 but whilst taking it apart some tape snagged on one of the connectors and ripped the cable out of the snap/pop connector. I have some high res pics here, best I could do...

I think all but one ofthe pins are there, but some are pushed down so the cable can't split them to fit inbetween. I can't find a magnifying glass to try and part them carefully at the mo but will look tomorrow.

If I can get them apart and get the cable to fit I imagine I could solder a wire or somehow get the missing pin to connect?
Any ideas?
