You forgot to include removing the middle screws from both sides of the rails and also removing the screw from the SD card (As well as the SD card module itself) BEFORE removing the shield plate. I would also throw in a caution about removing the battery if you aren’t going to use the adhesive removal solvant as one could potentially damage the on board battery connector or the ribbon cable, depending on what they use to pry the battery out of the case. Other than that, great guide and it helped me to replace my battery w/o issues.
