Hi guys, Great post! I just got hit with the GPU failure on my late 2011 MBP 15" and would also like to replace its board with the mid 2012 board. From what I gather the only 'real issue' is the one with the LVDS cable, but not really how you guys 'fixed' this. I read that it looks like the connector on the board is smaller, so, oke, what do I have to do? Just use more force and jam it in? Or is there some modification to the connector to be done before it'll fit? Please advice. Much appreciated.
