==How to disassemble your S1mp3==
<pre>Attention: In case you have a "XO style" case (or a different style of
case), this guide does *not* apply to you.

#Find a clear table / desk to work on, make sure the floor is not to messy.
It'll be a LOT easier to find back those tiny little screws / plastic
buttons that tend to fall out exactly the wrong way
#Stick a screwdriver/knife/needle between the USB plug and the bottom
plastic part (the one that holds the battery) . Any gap large enough to fit
a sharp edge in will do.
#Lever the bottom plastic of the rest of the player. It's not welded or
glued tight, so it'll come of easily. Be forceful, but gentle, if necessary.
Don't worry if you hear plastic "snapping" it's just the clips coming loose,
you are not breaking anything.
#In the four corners of the PCB (the printboard with all the chips) you'll
find four screws, find a screwdriver that fits, and unscrew them. Put the
screws in a container! Anything will do, from an egg holder to tupperware to
an ashtray, just don't loose the screws!! You can now lift off the main PCB.
Be carefull, as the LCD connector cable (brown flat cable) is quite fragile.
Don't break it!
#You can now safely remove the chrome/silver/shiny ring from the player.
Note how it fits under the main PCB, and how the LCD connector cable goes
through it. This bit is a bit tricky to reassemble later, so if you remember
how everything was in the first place, It'll be easier to put it back
#You can now see the back of the LCD board. there should be two screws in
it. Again, take your screwdriver and unscrew them. Put these screws in a
(different) container! Again, Don't lose the screws! You need them. Put them
in a different container to make sure you don't mix them up with the four
"main PCB screws", as that will cause trouble when you put the player back
together. After all that, you can take the LCD board from the front of the
case. Remember, the brown LCD connector cable is fragile, don't break it!
#Congratulations, you have now disassembled your S1MP3 player! To reassemble
it, just follow this guide in reverse order. Extra attention to see if the
buttons are well fit on the case, for not to force then while closing the
Now you have an open player, just seek everywhere on your player's PCB for
small-write written letters. Anything written in white on the green board
qualifies as a board ID. Some people take some time to find the small white
boardID info, but it's present in MOST of the s1mp3's out there.
