If the SIM tray is out, then you have missed a screw. It will come out easily once all the screws are out----make sure you're not forgetting the 2 screws at the top case securing the antenna

I got those two out already

Let us know which one you missed when you figure it out. Logic board slides out no problem if all screws are out.

I pried on the board trying to lift it and it snapped from area where a screw was already removed, I guess the board was old

"pried on the board" ouch. well give me a call when you need a pry damage fix.

Where the battery has the latch that connects to the board .. We'll that part of the board is ripped , just that a tiny piece is it fixable by buying a bare board

Pryed on the board were you left a screw in you mean logic boards don't stick when all screws are out

by

It did stick, don't assume because I can clearly see the board didn't have a screw there, if you disagree then don't comment!

by

Don't disagree just find it very weird

by

Hello nick email Jessabethany@gmail.com and post her pics of the damage and she will hopefully be fit to help..

There is a screw under the interconnect cables hard til see but the cables need removed to get at that screw. It's in that position you described
