Before starting to work on your device, it is advised to back up any important files just in case something happens. You will want to make sure you have the device powered off to prevent harming yourself or damaging your hardware, especially because you will have to remove the battery to remove the camera. To make reassembly easier, be sure to avoid misplacing the small screws by keeping track of them as you go.
