And secondly, I bought the 3.5mm gold jacks from radioshack, but am unsure of how I should actually wire them as I have never used them before. Its two pieces, one is threaded, and the other is the actual jack.Heres the Jack:
I would rewire the board.
For the jack, the ground attaches to the sleeve part of the actual jack (the longish metal tab) the other 2 tabs you see are for the tip (left) and ring (right). If you look closely, you will see that 1 of them is connected to the center. That's the tip.
Make sure, though, that you put the parts that screw/slide on before soldering anything, and make sure they're on the right way (personal experience).
