Step 11

Use the brush and softly work it in a circular motion on the logic board. This removes all of the corrosion on the board and it's very important to clean on all sides of all the chips on the board. Repeat this process on both sides of the board.

Step 12

Let everything dry for at least 3-4 hours. For best results, repeat the cleaning process around the logic board and all flex cable connectors. Allowing 24 hours to dry is best after the cleaning.
