Sorry, but this instruction is simply WRONG and missing some important part.

Between step 2 and step 3, you will have to peel off the speaker grille AND the glass screen of the device - behind those are also a lot of screws!! Without unscrewing them, you will NOT get your echo open.

You know that this is necessary by the way, because you mention it in your echo show teardown video.. so i do not understand why these important steps are missing here?
