[title] Removing the Motherboard Cover
[* red] Using our #00 screwdriver, we remove the screws around the outer edge of the upper interior cover of the phone that houses the motherboard and cameras.*** ''See info note below!''***
[* icon_note] Keep in mind that there are four hidden screws. One underneath the white tamper sticker(uh-oh) and a second under the plastic plug(circled in red), and 2 more under plastic plugs to the left and right of the camera. Tweezers are an effective tool for removing the plug.
[* black] Luckily, the OnePlus One was assembled with all of the same size screws save for the one holding down the motherboard. All of ''these'' screws are Philips 00 and 3.175 mm. in length.
-[* black] Once all of the 9 screws have been removed, you can pry the cover off with the blue opening tool, exposing the motherboard.
