    Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

    This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

Is it possible to purchase new ps vita analog sticks to replace beaten up ones with?

kay - 回复

Yes. I found them on dealextreme.com, but then saw that shipping could take awhile and double the price. I found a better deal on eBay-- $22 including shipping for a new analog stick.
