Step 1. Tools and Warnings
To get Started, you need to gather some tools and equipment.
You will need a jewelers screwdriver (approx size for
the screws on the back case will work for all screws),
a No 2 Pencil, some tweezers will help, a magnet tip (optional-not

|Warning! ALTHOUGH it is fairly
easy to work with the device, please take the following
precautions! Do not use excessive force on any of the screws,
ribbons, or sockets. Gentle pressure will do for most cases.
The ROM screws will be glued to the board and will take
a little extra pressure to break the glue off of them. Be
cautious of static build up, you can fry the circuitry pretty
easily. Before you touch the board, it is always good to
touch any screwdrivers, fingers, etc to a metal object to
release any charges. Also, be careful when using the magnetic
tip, do not hold it for extended periods near the circuitry!
