Adiós motherboard screws, we hardly knew you...
After removing a few more connectors, the motherboard easily lifts off the phone.
In order to strip the motherboard bare, the speaker/antenna assembly must be pried off of the board.
The speaker assembly uses pressure contacts to transmit data to both the speaker and the antenna. Interestingly, a hole through the motherboard allows sound to pass through for better transmission to the outside of the phone.
