After several years, the battery just would not hold electrons correctly anymore.
Followed the step by step directions on this site and they are spot on. The notes on lifting connector 1 and the gold grounding are very important.
After a little struggle with the screw for the camera, the phone is fully operational with a full charge.
It was be very helpful if the screw drivers sold were magnetized to hold the screws while trying to get them back in the holes.
I used a refrigerator magnet that is the shape of the iPhone and placed the screws I removed to ensure I put them back in the correct order.

My IPhone 5 was about a week old when I dropped and cracked it - screen did work but the danger of glass splinters in my fingertips while checking the weather forecast, and a long life expectancy of this marvelous phone, made me move to try to replace the screen. Internet said it was simple to do, and with somewhat crafty fingers and interest for fixing broken stuff, I went ahead and collected the pieces I needed. Screen from Hong Kong, supplied with tools that did not fit. So I got the needed tools from iFixit - iPhone 5-point pentalobe screwdriver, suction cup and a Phillips #00 screwdriver that was to big - all delivered on time and to the right price!
I went ahead, instruction video in one hand, broken iPhone in the other. The suction cup did not work on a cracked screen, rather obviously, as air seeped in through the cracks in the broken screen. So this advice, generally provided in all instruction videos, is a bum advice. You can skip the suction cup. And of course, everything is a little bit more fiddly than it seems in the video. The real difficult part was the camera, sensor, and home button part of the operation. With patience, slow pace and step by step approach, I got through it, and I now enjoy fantastic phone at full splendor again.
Skip the sucction cup. Take good time. Keep very good order of all the microscopic screws - make your own screwchart if you dont have one. And - you can do it if you have some patience, and ability for fiddly work! Good luck!

My iPhone had a broken rear case: a couple of cracks at the top and the bottom.
It went pretty well. It requires a bit of patience but it's not that complicated.
Remember that the screw that holds the mute switch on the top left is a bit longer than the others. I forgot about this and I could not put it back in place until I realized that. Also you need a magnetic screwdriver to hold the screw in place when remounting the device. The one I bought from iFixit isn't magnetic, so I used a little magnet to magnetize it before using it.

iPhone fell out of my pocket and exploded on my bathroom floor. The model was a little old but jailbroken and setup well for overseas trips. Did not want to replace with an unbroken model.
Bought parts at iFixit as described in guide, followed guide. EASY.
Great service. Fix or upgrade your favorite items instead of replacing. Satisfying and educational.

Replaced power jack on a notebook PC. Cracking case on notebooks without scraping or snap clip damage. Not to drop screws that require teardown to get back.
Repair sucess . Perfect sizes for all screws. No broken tabs or screw driver gouges on surfaces.
Buy the bigger kits if you can swing it. Don't drop screws on floor.
