I have a problem with my note pro 12.2 wifi. The battery connector is broken and needs to be replaced on the motherboard. I want to do it right but can find No information online about removing the motherboard (I have found one that is very good for the 10.1) but there are cables on the 12.2 not on the 10.1 that I am not sure how to remove them.

Great instruction set and photos. I was a little nervous cracking it open for the first time (not as bad as the first time I upgraded my PC, but close), but your pictures and instructions were aces! It would have gone easier if I’d realized earlier that clicking on the photos popped them out to a separate tab where I could zoom, but I figured that out soon enough. The general concensus on the opener tools are that they don’t last long. I’d have to agree with that. Mine took a beating trying to get the back off, but with your instructions, it’s fixed. Thanks!
