This guide is inaccurate in essentially every step.

A few examples:

1) there are 13 screws to remove the back housing

2) an additional 2 screws to remove the motherboard

3) fails to mention transferring power button and ear speaker

Just replaced a cracked screen on this model. This guide is pretty misleading. In addition to all the the things missing that the last commenter mentioned, it entirely fails to detail the most crucial part: replacing the screen. For which task you need a heat gun (hair dryer will do), metal spudger, replacement screen, and 1mm adhesive tape. I recommend this video to get a sense of what is actually involved: https://youtu.be/Q2tlwlHpZ04

Horrible guide. Change the title to "how to partially remove screen"
