Samsung Galaxy Tab Teardown (Sprint)

Headphone jack and mic assembly

The headphone/microphone jack assembly is held in place with a single Phillips screws and two pieces of tape. The translucent blue/green tape was extremely sticky, and I feared removing it would damage the thin ribbon cable underneath. As I want this Galaxy Tab to go back together in perfect working order, I'm going to leave the jack in place.
