All I want to be able to do is remove the battery so it can be replace, my biggest problem and most likely everyone biggest problem is removing the battery without damaging the the phone. And unfortunately there is little to no information indicating that step by step procedure in this guide.

I just de-soldered my three wires, however my new battery only came with the red and black wire. Where do I solder the yellow too. Replacement batteries are rarely the same as the original, but it is the correct model number.

So can this same method be applied to the studio xl 2? Because my battery has water damage and I have more than one Blu studio xl with working batteries and I was going to merely switch the batteries
