This doesn’t make sense.  guide is to replace display, Step 5 is “Insert new motherboard”???

Then no pictures for steps 6 and 7, are they to be done with motherboard in place or what?

What does your replacement display look like? does it include the plastic frame? “New motherboard” incorrectly assumes youre replacing the motherboard, if youre doing a screen, just re insert your old one.

There should be a different guide for the motherboard. Step 5 is super confusing.
