  • Insert the plastic opening tool into the seam of the tablet casing and gently pry upwards.

This image seems not to show the correct position where to place the tip of the tool initially. It suggests to pry between the frame and the glass pane from the top of the tablet. That's what I did and broke the glass - one device spoilt. Only the next picture correctly shows where to apply the tool.

  • Lift up the power button cable retention clip on the motherboard and pull the cable out.

These "Connection Apparatuses" are ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) FFC (Flexible Flat Cable) Connectors, and instead of trying to pull/wiggle the ribbon cable out, the side of the Connector with the ribbon going into it, has a gate that will flip up making the ribbon just simply slide out. The ribbons are also easier to reinstall with the gates flipped up as well. You just have to be careful with the gates as to not break the hinges. I will typically use the plastic case opening tool to pry the gate open.

  • Gently pull the Orange ribbon cable out of the connection port.

This port DOES have a clip. It's the white bit on the backside of the port. Flip it up and the connector will slide loose with no force at all.
