Can you provide the part number for the battery itself?

You fail to draw attention to the very real risk of breaking three small cables (one near the keyboard connector at the bottom, one on the right hand side and on at the right hand top - looking at the back panel with the SAMSUNG label right way up) - if great care is not used when removing the back panel. They are fragile cable, not mush spare length and no easy way to disconnect

Not sure if these cables and what they are attached to, are available as spares but require a more extensive disassembly to replace if they are!

pretty sure the correct way to take apart this device is to heat off the screen first, then after removing a few screws the metal chassis comes avay from the back avoiding you having to remove the back cover that has small flexed attached. therefore avoiding any chance of damaging the device by incorrect procedure. you should definitely update this guide

How is this supposed to work from the rear? There’s a ton of cables attached to the rear of the tablet. I have the rear plate lose (which was hard enough, as the gap isn’t wide enough for a plastic tool to get in), but now I can see cables connecting the tablet with the back plate, and I don’t see a way to disconnect all of them. Let alone reconnect them. I also think the right way to get in is through the screen…
