    I would say maybe, if you were able to find a board or something with a similar style lock, and carefully snapped it back in. I used to fix printers, and those use ribbon cables with locks, and the times I've broken them I've needed to replace the entire board.

    Not exactly what I wanted to hear... LOL! I just really need a way to lock the digitizer cable in place. I think my phone would work just fine if that cable were locked in...
