I may be wrong because I don’t own this device, but from what I’ve read from other tutorials, it does not look like it’s necessary to do steps 1 and 2. The tutorials I’ve read just split the mouse in 2 without messing with the bottom of the mouse. Doing so means they don’t need to worry about damaging the bottom or working with the adhesive.
