Introdução

Follow this guide to remove and replace the motherboard on a Motorola Edge.

The cameras connected to the motherboard can be removed in any order.

For your safety, discharge the battery below 25% before disassembling your phone. This reduces the risk of fire if the battery is accidentally damaged during the repair. If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions.
