Take the fake screen and trace it on the cardboard three times then cut them out. Fill in one of the corners black. Now trace the USB chip (take the case off with a screwdriver) onto one of the cardboard rectangles (before hand, mark where the switch spot is). Now cut the top layer ONLY of the cardboard and use your fingers and push the rectangle down like the picture. Next, put the cardboard in the case and slide the chip in making sure it fits.

Step 6: Glue

Making sure the connector is jutting out far enough, glue it in place. Make sure the chip doesn't slide around inside. Now glue the other cardboard pieces on top. Finally glue the top screen in place.
