I preformed this replacement on my LG G4 and found it to be very easy. However, between Steps 5 and 6, I will note a Warning...My camera was firmly attached to the frame with double sided tape. I simply removed the cable connector for the camera prior to lifting the Motherboard off of the frame (Step 6) and then pried the camera off of the frame using the spudger tool. I was able to reuse the tape on the replacement camera.

If i power on the phone with the module removed, will it cause any shorting or damage?

Ordered the part from this website and my phone doesn't recognize the new part. I had to reinstall the old broken camera for it to recognize.
