Thanks for posting this! I looked all over youtube and couldn’t find anything so I am relieved to find this tutorial! I haven’t performed the repair yet, but I was wondering if removing the screen is necessary. From what I see, I can access the camera by just removing the bezel. Thanks for your feedback in advance!
