Dumbest phone design. Battery replacement should always be easy. Good instructions. However, step 5 needs better photos to describe the delicate step. Pretty sure I tore up the speaker. Closer detail on where to pry is needed.
One cable snapped on reassembly. It snapped from inside the copper band where the wires are bare of coating. This is figured made all three of these wires interface and share whatever they are transmitting. So, I crimped the broken wire’s ends and shoved it back into the sleeve. I have tested my wireless features for two days and everything works like a charm.
This was perhaps the hardest step. I could not get under the recommended side and had to start at the other end. The speaker was adhered so tight to the keyboard it was impossible to pry up on the right side. But no damage was done.
Great walk-thru. Be sure to check out the step’s comments. Many tips are there, especially for the reassembly. Some tricks there help. Be sure to check the comments on the keyboard ribbon. The tape trick is the only way I think you will get it back in that slot.
Reminder: When replacing the cable the connector should be placed in from above. This fooled me and I damaged the seat a bit, but not enough to prevent proper connection.
