Step 3 requires three different connectors to be removed from the mainboard. Not one. Attempting to remove the mainboard after only disconnecting the gold-plated connector can result in damaged digitizer/display cable.

Out of curiosity, I don’t see the battery hiding in any of the pictures. Is it glued or otherwise attached to the backplate of the watch, and since you’re focused on the mainboard, we’re not seeing it for that reason? Thanks!
