the info provided is perfectly narrated and illustrated, however this guide is incomplete and potentially misleading. unintentionally im sure..

the guide is titled "Mid Frame Replacement" and all this guide tells you is how to remove the rear frame (still 2 separate components) it has made no mention of the fact the mid-frame is fused to the screen assembly nor any of the ribbon/cables thats quite possibly may affect the reader, and im afraid some may order a mid frame thinking they can handle this, only to be puzzled when the back comes off and they are left pondering what next.. im not trying to be spiteful, you guys are amazing and i always check your guides before a repair/swap ect that ive not done before to make sure i dont miss a hidden ribbon cable or device specific shortcut, im simply trying to look for the beginners that are aspiring to become one of ..

That being said love the site guys!! keep up teh good work, i use you at least a half dozen times a week :)
