    I have to agree that this is extremely complicated and intense.

    There is no way your average user should be doing this and the average user should be able to replace the battery!!

    Like everything in the computer world, hardware or software, ease of use is no longer even a consideration!!

    Technical Support Bots are the rule and they rarely are up to date with the pages on the website!!

    Sucks!!

    Ich hatte Probleme beim Entfernen des “USB Board flex cable”. Man muss vorsichtig den weissen “Schließer” in Richtung Kabel etwas öffnen. Nicht ganz herausziehen (obwohl das sehr leicht passiert). Das Kabel muss sich leicht herausziehen lassen. Beim Zusammenbau dann umgekehrt: Zuerst das Kabel einstecken, dann vorsichtig den Schließer wieder eindrücken.
