These Demo Pics really ought to be Directly Above the device/area of focus…
Considering the perspective of pic(s), it is entirely probable for user to uncouple, seemingly similar, Lightning connector cable directly next to Battery Connector. Just to be safe, without incurring any additional risk or time to your BATTERY Repair:
DISCONNECT BOTH CONNECTORS, IMMEDIATELY AFTER REMOVING METAL BATTERY CONNECTOR BRACKET (in previous step, #15).
The Red Text Warning in this step is a bit confusing, but it’s definitely not referring to the ++Lightning connector cable++ (directly next to Battery Connector). And if you mistakenly uncouple one and not the [batt connector] other, like I did, You’ll Most Certainly Corrupt the (FL2400) Ferrite Bead Filter, While Attempting to Gently Pry heated (old) Battery From It’s Seat; Rendering your device’s charging capabilities Null.
re: Is this what a damaged FL11 looks like on a iPhone SE?
GENTLY DISCONNECT BOTH CONNECTORS, IMMEDIATELY AFTER REMOVING METAL BATTERY CONNECTOR BRACKET (and not just the one as outlined in following step…)
If these 30+ comments don’t make it clear enough:
THIS IS THE MOST DIFFULT STEP (even more so without consulting comments beforehand).
These instructions ought to be amended to reflect this since our overwhelming consensus:
‘…using a hair dryer Applying (targeted) Heat to the rear case directly behind the battery. .’
Obviously attempting ‘Pull Up the original adhesive strips…’ should remain, rather than tacking on another bullet point, Inject an entirely new, numbered, step , e.g. when ‘The Adhesive Strips Breaks / snaps off…’
If they (somehow) successfully removed Adhesive Strips on first try, then,
‘Skip ahead to Step # / the Next Step…’
What Happened to the Rest of The Teardown-Steps?
FIVE (5) STEPS IS NOT A TEARDOWN
I need to remove my MBoard and prep it for shipping / repair.
That adhesive is molded to spec, bottom tray to rubber feet, so don’t toss it, you’ll need it to reattach the rubber feet. I would recommend lifting the delicate sticky carefully, its near impossible but it’s cut specifically to match the screw holes underneath.
these instructions need to be amended since not all four rubber feet have screws beneath them.
