    • Use a spudger/tweezers/fingernail to unlatch the LCD ribbon port by pulling the grey tabs on the sides upwards (towards the top edge of the PCB).

    • Once the LCD ribbon port has been unlatched, the LCD ribbon should very easily slide out and can be removed with zero force using fingers or tweezers.

    Guide does not indicate that the ribbon cable port should be UNLATCHED before attempting to remove the ribbon cable, I strongly suggest revising this as someone unfamiliar with these style of ports may assume that the ribbon cable is a compression fit and just needs to be "pulled" free of the port.

    This is a terrible idea that will potentially result in tearing the ribbon! Please consider revising guide to add a step to indicate the proper method/detail for unlatching the LCD ribbon port! Thanks :)

    • Use the spudger to lift the screen from the front panel. Place the spudger in the space directly left of the D-pad.

    • The screen and the front panel is connected by a black tape that could rip if not removed carefully.

    • You can use an iOpener or a hair dryer on the other side of the front panel in order to soften the black tape.

    This is a BAD place to pry on a functioning LCD. I used this exact method, slowly and carefully, and my LCD shattered.

    Instead, remove the lens (it’s worth it to sacrifice the lens adhesive to save your LCD), and gently and slowly press with a gloved thumb on a corner to push it through from the front of the Game Boy. Let the adhesive release itself, don’t force it. If the room is super quiet, you should be able to hear a faint peeling sound, even if you can’t see anything moving. That means you’re doing it right; just wait and it will release.

    Actually you can just pry under the ribbon cable. The LCD has a metal frame there that allowed me to slowly and carefully pry from that point without (re)breaking my LCD.

I dont understand. The items in “Tools featured in this teardown" is different from the tools written on the article e.g. Y0 in “featured" but Y1 in the “article”.

Great guide. My dumb ass didn’t see the screws holding the circuit board to the front shell lmao

I am having difficulty determining the size of the Tri-Point screws used on the Game Boy Advance. As a previous commenter noted the screw driver listed as “Tools Featured in this Teardown” shows a size of Y0, but in the text of the teardown it shows Y1. Can someone please clarify?
