@gigabit87898 you should consider adding images for each step of any guide. A good guide points out where screws are located, what size they are and if they are all the same etc. It is not enough to write "Remove midframe screws". Remember, guides are written for anybody and keep in mind that people wanting to use your guide to fix their device, may not have your knowledge.

As long as you do it correctly, it will be fine.

I have a heat gun, but I think I’ll try a hair dryer first. In the comments under disassembly video at youtube one commenter said the adhesive is just double stick tape. Here’s the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY5ltw1X...
