Remove one screw located on the left side of the phone with the pictured orientation in mind. This will release the logic board from the back case. Lift the board out of the case starting with the top. Continue to fold it forwards to access the ribbon cable still connecting it.

Pull the logic board out with a pry stick gently from bottom to top at the current orientation. The ribbon cable will be connected underneath the logic board.  A small amount of force is required to disconnect them. Although some force is required to lift up the board, be careful as to not bend any of the pins on either side.

There is a plastic square that surrounds the camera and keeps it in place.  Pry this up first making note of the orientation of the part and how there is a tab pointing in the same direction as the ribbon cable. Once it is loosened the surround can be removed and set aside.  The next step is to detach the ribbon cable.
