I wouldn't waste my time. It's not too essential and my repairs where that piece has torn etc haven't been effected. Just put the piece back as best you can.

thx gunna fix it up and see how it runs right quick!


ok i fixed it all up aaaand it cant connect to the wifi


your wifi has nothing to do with te copper tape. wifi is located on the top left


Wifi is that silly little push tab cable that sits on top of the white plastic corner piece ( ie top left corner) try just pressing the connector on and inspect for tears, they do tend to stick to the back of the screen when you lever it up.
