Use the plastic opening tool to remove the black plastic cover from the rest of the phone.
It is best to start from the bottom of the phone by the memory card slot.
The cover should pop out of place by the four corners of the phone. There is no need to use excessive force as this may cause the plastic to break.
Using the plastic opening tool, separate the connectors to the screen.
Make sure to note the orientation and location of each cable before disconnecting. This will ensure that the motherboard will be reconnected properly.
