My GF broke her back panel months ago but couldn’t figure out when because it was in the case at the time. the phone is almost 2 years old & she uses it more than any other phone, so the battery was dying a natural death since it has been charged well over 800 times. She was getting about 6–7 hours of heavy use out of it.
I can fix anything so the back panel (which I helped a friend replace thanks to iFixit’s pro technician kit with the pentacle driver) took less than a minute to pull. the battery was another story. not only was the advesive unwilling to budge but the little metal part that is less than 4mm at its widest part is secured with the same screw that the connectot cable is. The iFixit pictures do not have a close up of it, so it is very difficult to see. luckily I have steady hands & was able to line up the part. If not for that tiny bit, I could have completed the battery swap & rear glass replacement in under 10m. I did have her phone back together & working in under 20m though. no photos cause this was a time sensitive operation
show a close up shot of that little part and show its alignment. A separate step to show the easiest way to reassemble that part would have been helpful.

I placed my iPhone on a ledge while playing basketball with my sons. When the ball went OB it knocked my phone off the ledge. It fell on the driveway and the back panel cracked.
I mean to purchase the special screwdriver with the panel but mistakenly didn't. I found a repair kiosk in the mall and the guy here was kind enough to install the part for me. Took him about a minute and he didn't want to be paid.
1. Be careful where you leave your phone. 2. Make sure you have the right tool for the job.

Shockingly enough it got run over a few times after leaving my phone on my bumper and only the back glass broke. The case I had on it was in pieces and the front screen did not even have a scratch on it.
The repair took about 2 minutes and that's only because the screws are so small!
It's so easy and inexpensive to fix. Don't hesitate

My girlfriends iPhone 4S dropped on the floor and both the screen and real glass panel cracked. So being the geeky engineer that I am, I rushed to the opportunity to be her hero by fixing the screen and rear glass panel all by my self. So I fixed it and became her HERO! Can you say.... MEGA POINTS!!!! Yeah Baby....
The process went very smooth. I was able to follow the instructions on-line and only had two minor little problems that I just didn't pay attention to. But two hours later I was able to replace both the screen and rear glass panel. I tested the phone and everything worked like nothing had gone wrong. Once again, my geeky engineering skills came to the rescue. :)
None. The process went smooth. Thanks IFIXIT! You guys helped make me look like I have handy-dandy man skills.
