Not that I want to discourage anybody, but for me cleaning the
flex cable has never fixed a case of Jaggies. Neither has anything
else (hard reset, shaving material off the inside of the bezel, ...)
100% of my jaggie patients had to be cured by digitizer replacement.

However, the original question was about a misalignment problem.
This is an altogether different cup of tea and has nothing to do
with the jaggies. Except for the fact that like the jaggies I have
never been able to fix such a problem without a digitizer replacement.
