I want to learn how to take off the iPhone 8 back glass but not the full back housing. I attempted it in the pictures but I don’t want to have to do it so rough next time. Don’t worry it wasnt a full phone in there. It was just the housing for parts. Future tips and tricks would be very helpful!!! Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There are no tricks to it. The adhesive that Apple uses for the back glass is INCREDIBLY aggressive. Without specialized tools and equipment, the “easiest” (note the quote-unquote) method is to freeze the housing with liquid nitrogen. This will turn the adhesive very brittle and allow you to scrape it off with comparatively less effort.
