In this next step it is easy to pry the wrong piece. Make sure to pry at the metal platform that the sister board sits on, not the orange printed circuit board itself. Using your prying tool, pry at the right red marked corner, making sure to pull at the metal platform under the circuit board. Once it is raised slightly, pull along the underside until the left red mark. This should loosen the board and allow it to be removed.

Can this part use to replace LG Gx F310L (LG Optimus G Pro Korean version)?

Oops! The tutorial makes no mention of the 3 little buttons that will fall out when taking off the inner cover. I'm using tape from the outside to hold the buttons in place.

Really nice instructions, thanks. One point of confusion for me, the original metal platform had raised edges and the one on the replacement did not. Just an FYI for others that may be momentarily stumped like I was.
