    I'd recommend getting a new ribbon cable if possible.

    Ribbon cables can be a hassle to repair.

    Or.......put your ipod back together, and then just tell apple that your wifi stopped working and they might give you a new one

    Why did you open your iPod, you should have taken it to Apple.
