    • The easiest insertion point for the metal spudger is at the corners of the device.

    • Slide the spudger across the perimeter of the device and gently pry apart at each corner.

    • When the screen is separated from the back panel there will be two connected ribbon cables between the two halves of the device. These cables must be disconnected before further disassembly.

    • After the pressure clamps are released orient the device so that the speaker is to the right and the screen is tilted away from you.

  2. The device is oriented with the camera to the right and the external button towards the top of the picture. Locate the shorter ribbon cable and the black pressure tabs that hold the ribbon cable in place.

    • Locate the shorter ribbon cable and the black pressure tabs that hold the ribbon cable in place.

    • The tabs used to connect the ribbon cables are fragile and can easily be damaged.

    • Use the plastic spudger to gently slide the tabs about 2mm away from connector.

    • Once tabs are successfully disconnected the ribbon cable should come out of the port without resistance.
