This guide also works for the AT&T iPhone4S. With a little care, the RF shield can be removed without taking the battery out, though you should still disconnect it. It only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

My 4S camera has a black rubber isolator between the portion of the logic board that runs across the top of the phone and the camera body. It was covered by a black tape piece that covers the little prong that is secured between the logic board and that mounting screw. I replaced my logic board and this thing fell out. I am not certain I have it replaced properly, but the camera does not move at all and is lined up correctly, so it does fit the space. It is a C channel that fits over the edge of the logic board. I think only some phones have this. I do not see it in *any* of the various 4S guides. If it is in there it is probably important. If you remove your camera be CAREFUL to note whether you have this .25” long 2mm thick black rubber bit. If you do, CAREFULLY inspect its orientation so you can replace it if you knock it loose. Everything still works perfectly, so at least it seems I did no harm in placing it where I did.
