How to install battery after taking it apart

You give great instructions on disassembling the unit. What about re-assembling the unit? Seems like the cable will need to be soldered again. What about the adhesive? Will the old adhesive work? Can you just apply pressure and will it stick again? Or do you need to heat it up with a heat gun? Or perhaps you need to apply new adhesive somehow? Thanks in advance.

Wontae Hwang, yes you will have to resolder it. I have not had to use new adhesive. The old one has always been sticky enough to reassemble it without having any problems with it. Also, on the guides, make sure that you have "comments on" that way, when you scroll all the way down the pages, you will find plenty of comments about difficulties and shortcuts that others had with this task. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have found the hold switch cable to need a mild adhesive so it would stay glued to the LCD's frame after reassembly - because it would be badly sitted, either getting caught and ripped, or just in a bad position which the actual hold switch would not be able to sit on. I used a bit of silicone glue, which can be purchased at your local hardware store (and is pretty cheap!)
