    Oh that was rich!!! “We not response any damage you did by following this video” SERIOUSLY??? How about you learn to write in "PROPER ENGLISH" before putting up a disclaimer! Stupid F**kS!

    What this poorly thought out video lacks:
    1) a camera angle featuring a clear view of the computer
    2) on screen graphic or textual identification of the screwdriver bits (T6, Ph6, etc)
    3) text or voice explanation of each phase of the procedure
    My analysis: this is a difficult and time intensive procedure. There are other videos on this procedure on this mac model, many of which are far more supportive and well made in supporting those of us who choose to undertake it. Please search around for something better. Replacing this keyboard is hard work. Don't allow this video to be your guide. By its poor production and lack of clarity this video runs a high risk of leading you to damaging and possibly even destroying your machine.

    skipped some important parts…

    removing the keyboard takes much less time than installing it…

    disassembling the keyboard is a dangerous job with the risk of damaging the keyboard? Not unless you use a jackhammer. Working with the Mainboard, there is a much higher risk of doing damage…

    You cant see important filigran screwing jobs…

    So, all in all, not a good tutorial.

    I also bought 12 gb of RAM and 500 SSD to upgrade this Mac JustU.Faith/Mac-Pro It runs great on Sierra and I use programs such as Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro for my projects. This is a great investment.

    As someone who does these repairs often two comments… don't use metal tools to remove connectors and other fragile things, use a plastic spudger. Don't use a power screwdriver and make sure your screwdriver is of good quality and in good condition (even the good ones wear out especially if abused). Make sure it has a good "bite". Cheap screwdrivers cause more trouble than they are worth. Buy Wiha or similar quality.

    The new models are a bigger pain to do, too many screws that strip easily

    WTF? Why did you omit reassembly and reinstall of the logic board? Literally the most difficult part gets cut out and it makes this video useless for anyone who actually has the capacity to repair this computer. Luckily, I just did it myself. It not hard if you just take your time. So thank you for wasting 10 minutes of my life. Useless. Did you make this video just so people would take it half apart and then be stuck? Totally useless.
