    • Remove the ten Phillips screws attaching the rear panel.

    Can't take off the screw top left next to the battery. What type of screwdriver do I use and where can I find some?

    • The rear panel is attached to the motherboard by a ribbon cable, so be careful not to lift the rear panel too far from the device.

    • Carefully pull the rear panel straight up from the device.

  3. Carefully flip the back panel over to locate the attached ribbon cable.
    • Carefully flip the back panel over to locate the attached ribbon cable.

    • Remove the two Phillips screws attaching the ribbon cable to the rear panel.

    • Take the opportunity to remove the Left and Right triggers, they have hinges that may break and springs that may jump away.

    You can also detach the cable from the motherboard safely by flipping up the connector on the motherboard. Just don't forget to reattach. Some will find this tedious but may save time if you know what you're doing with said connectors.

    Likewise, I used a tiny drop of glue to put the lens back in place. Take care not to dirty the lens.

    The picture you have there has the camera lens ribbon installed upside down. The ribbon needs to be pointing down when you re-attach it not up.

    Agreed, ribbon cable looks upside down in picture

The two top screws on the backpanel I cannot get out, I used the same screwdriver I used for every other screw.

Please help!

For those two screws that are on the top cap aren’t supposed to come out, if the do come out it means you’ve broken those screws. Also after unscrewing that top it should just slide up.
