All week as we were preparing this article all I could think was: "No disassemble! No disassemble Librem 5!"

@kyle "If you can't fix it, you don't own it!." I applaud Purism for posting this. Moar companies need to do stuff like this. Thanks for sharing!

@xiled @kyle Also if CDDA taught me anything, is that you’ll need to know how to repair things. Especially under non-ideal circumstances with improvised tools.

@xiled @kyle A TV in the cafeteria at work used to be turned off by cleaners at the wall. This 'broke' the TV. It was binned. I removed the TV from the bin, placed a USB into it with a firmware update on it and held down VOL to initiate the update. That TV still runs on my wall today, 6 years later, flawlessly.

@thadius @kyle S C O R E ! Thank you for repairing and saving it from the landfill! 📺 🛠️
