Edit Step 4  ¶ 

  • For this step a matal spudger was used to release the clips along the bottom, top, and sides of the phone.

  • These clips can be found at these point marked in red.

  • There may look like a lot of clips, but working from the top down, gently prying at the case they are easily dislodged.

Edit Step 5  ¶ 

  • When the bottom of the phone was reached it was a bit harder to pull the bottom clips off.

  • This can be made a tad easier by using the pointed end of the spudger to get in and under the case.

  • Once this is lifted up slightly you can get enough purchase under the clip and lift it off.

  • Be careful so that you dont damage the motherboard!
