Getting the logic board cover off.

I'm just wondering how I can get the iPhone 4 Logic Board to be exposed. I cannot see most of the connectors as they are covered by a black paper sort thing. I want to check if the connectors are corrroded or not.

There are no connectors as such under there, only chips etc. There's no reason to go beneath unless you are trying to inspect certain chips or need to bathe the board in Isopropyl Alcohol.

That said, you can remove 3 of the shields by simply using a guitar pick or even your finger nail to unclip the shield around it's edges and then peel them up. Just remember not to apply to much force on the board.

By saying connectors I meant chips. I need to inspect the backlight IC chip.
