I have made some arrangement to clarify particularly using pictures from the teardown that are just perfect. The original picture was not detailed and did not show the battery in place.

If you can't power on after battery replace:

Charge for an hour

Try holding down power plus volume down while plugging in power

If that doesn't work replug inside battery connector (this fixed for me)

Recommend data backup before in case you can't get it booting.

Just did this - thanks for all the instructions, easy if you have the right tools

followed these instructions and the device boots up OK but then immediately shuts down. getting into recovery mode and checking the logs I can see that the phone thinks the battery is over temperature (790C vs max of 68C). Hopefully it's just a poor connection where I fitted it. I'll take it apart and try again later.

Note that it is very easy to break a screw holding the battery connector - don't over tighten. I've managed to hold down the end of the connector, towards the center of the phone, with a washer fitted to a nearby screw. It's been working fine for 6 months
