yes, me too, first attempt (extremely frustrating) was ruined by the hump from the battery connector making it (didn’t realize until too late) impossible to PERFECTLY align adhesive.
cut a little window through blue backing films over the battery cable.
my phone was missing the orange screw also. i was kinda freaking out. i realized i had several screws i could salvage from my broken screen. i just made absolutely sure the “orange” screw i salvaged was SHORTER than the red 2.9mm screws! someone somewhere said if your screws are too long you can easily penetrate the motherboard and then you’re ******.
thanks tyler, i didn’t want to mess with it either so i did as you suggested and left it dangle.
thanks a lot quintin! i think your tip really helped. i followed your procedure. i believe i would’ve adhered the main adhesive slightly in the wrong place if i hadn’t (done as below…)
one thing i found, the black plastic “ribbon” thingy would not fit comfortably around the screw post for the right hand taptic screw and the screw post for the speaker module. i used the flat tip of the spudger to force a crease in the black plastic ribbon thingy against the aluminum back “plate”(before as you said, i removed the adhesive backing) and that moved the ribbon only just slightly lower to fit comfortably around those two screw posts. i hope i didn’t damage the internal “wires” by forcing such a “crease” in it.
i didn’t observe the photo, i pried it from the side not realizing there’s a wire connection under it, i inadvertently also disconnected the wire too. best to grasp the display cable bracket from position pictured.
