Don't forget to reset the time and date when your done.

Some of the apps will not work and the operating system will not tell you that this is the problem.

Thanks for this great guide.

When attaching the new battery it helped me to actually attach the wiring connector before final placement of the battery. Also, I found it easier to put the single screw in first before pushing the battery all the way down and starting the three on the other side. The cscrew holes in the replacement battery have to be PERFECT and if they’re just slightly off you can’t get the one lonely screw started if you put the other three in first.
