Step 3. Removing the ROM

Since the processor is on the oppossite side of the board than the one you are looking at now, you will need to access the other side. First, you will need to remove some more screws. The ROM is the small board towards the middle of the board that you will need to remove two screws from.

As you can see, the two screws will need to be removed. Use the screwdriver to remove these screws. You will need to use some torque to get them off since there is factory "glue" that is holding the screws. Once you have removed both screws, place them away from the work area, but do not mix them up with any of the other screws! You will now need to remove the rom board. This is pretty easy, just gently pull up and rock the board out. The photographs below should help.
