hey everyone been a long time! well im back! WooT! this is a quick simple fix for your cable mine was broken where just about everyone's is broken at. i basiclly just felt for the break and cut a little ahead of it. spliced the cables and just connected the red and black and the shield that covers all the wire. didnt connect the white and green because i have no reason to, i just keeping the cable plugged in. be careful when stripping the wires because you may only get on shot at it. good luck to everyone. just let me know if your have any question or need more info.
