Step Lines

[* black] Remove the following five screws securing the wi-fi antenna to to the logic board:
[* red] One 2.3 mm Phillips
[* orange] Two 1.6 mm Phillips
[* yellow] One 1.4 mm Phillips
[* green] One 4.8 mm Phillips
[* icon_caution] When re-assembling, start off with replacing the 4.8 mm Philips screw first, then the 2.3 mm. ''This is to ensure there is no mix-up, and avoid rendering the LCD and digitizer useless.''
[* black] Take caution when removing or installing the 1.4mm screw as the mounting post on the PCB frequently will detach given any excess torque. Strongly recommend holding screwpost with fine tweezers when removing or installing.
[* icon_caution] Also make sure to put the long 4.8 mm Philips back in correctly when reassembling. This is the ground for the Wi-Fi antenna and is often the culprit if you are having bad wi-fi reception after reassembly.
