    • Once the screws are all out from the exterior back case, Begin separating the front housing from the back by using a spudger or any similar tool.

      • Begin from the bottom were the battery bay is, It is the easiest way.

    • Be careful of ribbons behind the plastic

    • Once separated begin to remove the LED board. Apply only light upward force and it will detach itself.

    • Vibrator come's out easy, Just grab it by the wire and give it a little tug and it should come out.

    • Start unlocking the clips holding the ribbons. pull the white tab up to unlock.

      • Example: bottom left is unlocked, bottom right is locked. upper left has bin finished and removed.

    • Tuck the ribbons in without bending or making tears in them.

    • Behind the main board is two more ribbon's.

      • Flip both tab locks holding the ribbons and they will slide out vary easily, Don't force it.

    • Wifi/cellular antena port, Lift up cord head directly to remove and press straight down centered to put back on.

    • As a side note, the grey tape on the back side of the board was covering the clips so i cut a small section for this guide.
