Default UPDATE: My GPS doesn't work anymore!

A followup to my previous post... I replace the springs in my and the missus' G2, and I even replaced her cracked screen.

Went on a trip a couple of weeks later and realized my GPS no longer works. My wife's works fine.

I just opened my G2 up again to see if anything was loose, reconnected everything. Still no GPS. Ugh.

Can anyone describe or show me what the GPS connector, antenna, or some other part of the GPS that I might have dislocated inadvertently?

I'm just posting an update since my spring replacement last year and I can honestly say that my hinge still no longer sag/hang when my phone is hanging upside down. For those that are afraid to give this a try I say go for it cause it really makes a difference. Thx to the OP of this tread/video it's exactly what I needed.

I love this mod. I'm wondering if you can use springs from pens? Looks very similar.

Ordered the springs from McMaster-Carr anyway.
