Do not attempt to fully open the phone before loosening the adhesive. Insert a plastic opening tool into the seam between the front and rear covers near the SIM card slot. Carefully slide the plastic opening tool around the corner, freeing it from clips.

Run the opening tool along the seam around all four sides, separating the remaining clips holding the cover on. The plastic on the front cover is thinner near the buttons, and the buttons may move around.

Go slowly to avoid damaging the buttons or the front cover. Do not push the opening tool deep into phone, or you may damage internal components.

Heat an iOpener and lay it over the phone for approximately 90 seconds to loosen the adhesive securing the back cover. The back cover is very flexible, but you don't want to damage any internal components by being too hasty.

There is a chance that the NFC coil may remain stubbornly adhered to the back cover. If that's the case, stop peeling the cover and reapply a heated iOpener to the back cover.

Do not separate the back cover entirely; it is still connected to the phone by the camera flash cable. Gently set the back cover down in a way that exposes the camera flash cable connector, but does not put strain on it.

The battery is secured to the motherboard with mild adhesive. Peel slowly, and be careful not to bend or puncture the battery. When reassembling your phone secure the battery with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.

Push the tip of a spudger under the microphone assembly clip to free it from the earpiece speaker. If the assembly clip seems to be missing, check the speaker assembly that was removed from the previous step.

Insert the flat end of a spudger under the motherboard above the button assembly cable, and pry it out of the phone. Gently lift the motherboard out of the phone, rotating it from the SIM slot edge of the phone.

Do not attempt to separate the motherboard entirely; it is still connected to the display by the display cable. Use the flat end of a spudger to flip the retaining tab on the display cable ZIF connector.

Carefully pull the display cable out of its connector as you remove the motherboard from the display assembly. Use the tip of a spudger to push the volume rocker button cover out of the display assembly, and remove.

Use the tip of a hobby knife to pry the button assembly off of the adhesive securing it to the display assembly. Keep the sharp edge of the knife pointed away from the cable to avoid accidentally cutting it.

Pry the earpiece speaker out of the display assembly with the point of a spudger. Look over the long edges of the display assembly and note where all the pins are.

Be sure to do this in a clean and brightly lit work area. The pins are very small and are easily lost. To reinstall the pins, align them with the holes on the outside of the display assembly and them push inwards.

Use the flat end of a spudger to pry up the white mid-frame from the display assembly. If any part of the mid-frame seems resistant to movement, check for any overlooked pins still holding the frame in place.

Hold the edges of the white mid-frame and push against the display assembly to swing the mid-frame free. When reassembling your phone replace old adhesive with double-sided tape or pre-cut adhesive strips.

Compare your new replacement part to the original part. You may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

Cancel: I did not complete this guide. Badges: I was able to follow this guide, but the T3 Torx was too small. The T4 Torx was also too small.

Fortunately I had a T5 Torx which worked perfectly. Be careful with that component. NO seriously I have done a ton of electronics projects and getting a torx screwdriver that actually works with most electronics has been a struggle this is the new version of the husky I have the old version I believe they are the same.

This thing has caught thread on screws where I had given up hope. This is insane. I'm a computer tech, I build computers for a living. I repair components.

Fixing this little crappy phone is crazy complex. Look at all the comments saying "be careful of x because I destroyed it accidentally".

Not a one says "wow, that was incredibly simple".
