God.... why didn't I check these comments first?!?! Just had the same problem as samattie. Instructions said 'pull it from its socket', included a picture that kinda looked like it had been pulled upwards, and (unlike other less-fragile dangers) did not include any warning of a danger to be careful of. Now, after 1 mistake, even though I didnt use hardly any force at all, the cover flap to the zif connector is broken, and some of the pins are bent or missing (a single sneeze is probably enough to bend them, an they dont even need that much to fall out if exposed)... so all this effort was a total failure. Next I can tell my 9 yr old son I wasn't able to help him fix the ipad he accidentally dropped. Think he'll be happy if I give him an etch-a-sketch instead?
I know its nobodys fault but my own... but especially now, knowing this was pointed out 2 years ago but still left from the guide.... all I can say is FU too. This will be the first and last time I ever try and use this junk site.
