Just finished replacing the lens in the GoPro 4 Black here at work (that I dropped and broke). Other than a missing step and struggling with reconnecting the last ribbon cable during reassembly, it when well. After seeing these instructions, I was confident I could replace the lens. Thanks for posting this. It was very helpful.

How do people manage to get the last ribbon cable in place?

It's tricky. Reconnecting that small ribbon cable took me the longest of all of the steps to complete. I used the curved needle tweezers in the kit. It can be done, so keep trying.

I'm looking at the flags and it is saying that this is a archived version and I should use the update version. But I don't know how to find that.

Sorry about that! It looks like a new set of guides is in the works, but nothing has been published as yet. So for the moment, the flag is misleading, and this is the only available version of the guide.
