My Problem

I needed to replace the battery.

My Fix

The hardest part was freeing the case opposite the buttons.

My Advice

The tab holding the black antenna cover is hinged. A photo showing the way it is made would be helpful.

My Problem

I phone 1 Would not take a charge (number of time)but several weeks later after allowing to drain it took a full charge and have not yet therefore changed the battery. Have received all items, excellent service next day delivery. Thank you.

My Problem

The old battery died completely.

My Fix

Replacing the battery was easy thanks to iFixit but the problem was the home button is also not working anymore. Since it's a jailbroken phone I installed Activator and used a double click on the sleep button to simulate a home button action. Then I went to erase all data and settings from the phone and now it is stuck on the boot logo. iTunes cannot detect the phone, and I cannot get it into DFU mode because the home button doesn't work. I have the phone stripped at the moment. I need some suggestions to get the home button working or replacing the home button. The phone is unusable at present.

My Advice

I need advise.

My Problem

orig. battery was weak, didn't hold much charge

My Fix

The first battery from iFixit resulted in a phone that appeared bricked. Phone would start but not boot, not able to restore or leave recovery mode. DFU mode could be achieved but nothing else.

Mike picked up my comment on the "meta" site and suggested I send a note to support@ifixit.com, which I did. I was sent a new battery without asking for one, nor anything else. When I asked why this was I was told the battery or soldering job might have been bad ...

The second battery arrived, I removed the first replacement and reinstalled the phone's original battery --- it booted up perfectly. I removed that and installed the new, second battery from iFixit and all's well.

My Advice

If you fear the worst, reinstall your old part and verify you can get back to the original condition that required a fix (if applicable, of course.)

And go slow with the back cover. I bent it where it meets the antenna cover and now doesn't close completely.

My Problem

Unlocked Iphone 1st Gen. battery kept dying.

The battery would go from 100 to 50 to dead in a 5 min. phone call.

My Fix

It took 15 minute to change it out. Super easy. The phone is working like a charm now. full charge. the battery never dies. like a brand new phone!

My Advice

Don't be intimidated by the reviews. It's very simple process. does't take 45 min! and it can save you a lot of money of replacing your phone. fix it, don't buy another!

My Problem

The phone would not hold a charge more than a few minutes but worked otherwise.

My Fix

The battery arrived quickly and fit perfectly. The repair was done in 40 min without a major hitch. It's running perfectly now.

My Advice

Only one small hitch. One of the screws on the circuit board is covered with a "Do not remove" label which doesn't appear in your video. Consequently I spent awhile trying to understand why the board wouldn't lift until I peeled away the label and found the 7th screw. It would be a good thing to tell people that in the video but otherwise it went well. The how-to video is a life-saver.

My Problem

Although leaving my iPhone 2g on the lawn to get soaked by the sprinklers was a good excuse to upgrade, I've never had the heart to actually throw the broken thing away. I finally decided I might as well try to crack it open so I ordered tools and a replacement battery.

My Fix

Opening the phone was easier than I expected. All told, I spent about an hour opening the phone, desoldering the old battery, soldering in the new one, and cleaning out some lint with a dental pick and canned air. The phone looks almost as good as new now, although some of the seams aren't quite as tight as they were from factory. Now I want to try repairing all my busted down gadgets.

My Advice

I cut my fingers a few times on the sharp edges of the aluminum iPhone back, so be careful! Also, use some desolder braid to clean up the pads where the battery is soldered in.

My Problem

my battery was going to 0 in 3 hours!

My Fix

Perfectly!

My Advice

just search it well!
