It's not necessary to unsolder the battery back for this at all, as long as you're careful not to pull on the battery wires, all you have to do is leave it attached and make sure it doesn't move too far from the board.

This stops with the display supposedly still firmly attached to the motherboard. How is this a display replacement procedure?
