Worn out home button; only getting maybe 1 in 5 presses
Straight forward repair. Took 2 hours end-to-end, with the longest time (30 minutes) getting the display separated from the frame.
Watch the video, and read thru the guide at least once before starting. Have a container for all of the hardware. I noticed that all of the screws are 000 size, so have the proper driver before digging in.

Home button wasn't working, so replaced the part.
Was straight forward. The online step by step instructions provided by iFixit were extremely helpful.
I felt a bit confused on how to exactly wire up the button ribbon. Took a lot of examination of the photos in the instructions. Really look at how it is setup before taking it off.

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.

The SIM Card wouldn't eject.
I wanted to be able to change out the front and back myself. Without spending a ton of money to swap out the phones.
It went well
Your tools and instructions are pretty awesome. I like the freedom from the Apple machine.

My iPhone 3GS is still working like new, after a few years of intensive use, I needed only a new battery. I have been using iFixit to update and repair our Macs at home following your manuals to do all king of updates and repairs, those repairs were always very easy to accomplish.
As soon as I got the battery and the tools, I logged into the IFixit manuals and I finished the job in 30 minutes. The manual said that it could be done in 15 minutes, but I don't see how.
Your step by step manual and your new video with great information, was enough to help me to get the old battery out. If you follow the step by step instructions anything can be repair.
Repairing equipment that still could work well with a simple update is good for the environment, for our pockets, and it's also fun.

Lost ejecting tool that came with the device , started using tweezers and anything that was available including earrings and wires but didn't feel good about it , I realized that I was going to damage the device sooner or later . Saw ejection tool on ifixit.com
So I ordered 2 pcs . Now I am sure to treat my iPad properly.
Got the ejection tool in the mail , didn't doubt for a second that it will arrive.
So be sure to treat your devices with the respect they deserve by using proper tools.

The drill, bits and mat were purchased to aid in my building of and repair of RC models
The drill and bits were used in construction of aircraft, while the magnetic mat helped by keeping small screws and parts from falling to the floor and being lost, these items can be very, very small
Advanceing age is usually the requirement for simpler ways of completing thing that used to be simple

The home button on my iPhone wasn't 100% dead yet but it would intermittently stop responding. I had learned to live with the deficient home button but was gifting the phone to one of my kids and knew I'd never hear the end of it!
The overall process went very well... it was a little scary at times that I was going to lose one of the tiny screws or maybe rip one of the delicate ribbon cables. After all was stuffed back inside with NO extra parts except for the 'bad' home button... I fired it up and was greeted with the familiar White Apple! I functionally tested everything and it all seemed to work as it did when it was brand new!!!
The screws are TINY and DIFFERENT sizes... be sure to keep them marked some how... I laid out everything on a piece of cardboard as I took it off the phone and used colored markers to mark the color of the screws based on the color dots on the instructions. It worked perfectly!!!
