Where or who who sells replacement microUSB port PCB for the HTC flyer, as one of the pins in port broke? I've searched high and low and can't find a place... please help!

You'd have to find a broken Flyer power board. (rare) and replace it from one that has a broken screen or other issues.

What I did was to connect a 5v 2a charger wires directly to the leads next to the EXTmicro USB port. That supplied power to the charge circuit. Though it gets annoying, at least I get to use the tablet. Looking into replacing it with a micro USB port and forego having to use a data connection.
