• Kindle Fire HD Teardown

    I understand that too read the SOC label you eventually would want to peel off the copper tape from its head but this is not an action I would recommend in a quick home repair situation unless you have similar replacement copper tape at hand.

    To free the motherboard, just peel of the tape where it sticks to the battery cover and magnesium frame (top and bottom of the copper tape strip).

    This leave the major part of the heatsink in place and you just need to find a way to re-adhere two small ends.
