Apple iphone 2G Power Button Repair -Flex Cable Tutorial (VIDEO)

My silent button on my Apple iphone 2G 1st Generation 8GB stopped working the other day. I thought this would be a perfect time to make a video, upload it on youtube, and post it here as well. I uploaded this video about 3 weeks ago and just got an email from them saying, "Apply for revenue sharing for your video". I'll be posting a section about revenue sharing for youtube videos in an upcoming post which will be linked here.
