Gently lift the motherboard up to extract the charging port out with the tweezers. Be cautious not to disconnect any wires or ribbon cables.

There seems to be a missing step here? The port does not just pull out with tweezers. It is not a snap in/out part. I do not recommend following this tutorial. After some research, these ports need to be heated and possibly soldered before you remove them. My tablet was tribute for this, and is now broken beyond repair. Thanks :)
