Report on previous ALERT comment…I successfully completed the battery installation and closed up the phone with the black tab lying over the battery rather than tucked down and into the space between the end of the battery and the other components. The case closed up ok, and the end screws went in successfully ( I had to squeeze the case closed to get the screws at the end to line up with the holes on the little tabs inside.
***** ALERT This is a non obvious failure point. If the battery is too close to the right (lower) end in picture, you can’t fold the black Tab down which is two steps further down. This should be in the main instruction, not as a note. Mine is too close to the home button connector socket, I will try folding the black tab over battery. Report to follow
I connected the battery before removing the pink strip; removing the strip was easy with battery connected and the chance of touching adhesive while fiddling with the connector was reduced.
