  • Disconnect the cable near the volume buttons.

The orange circle in line with the 4 other red circles down the RH side (as shown) in the photo should be red also, as this shows a screw, not the cable (which is by the volume buttons).

Hey Huey,

Nice catch! This has now been fixed.

any idea where i can purchase that back case?

The "Tools" section of the guide lists a Y0 screwdriver as required but in the steps it says Y1. Now I have a Y0 screwdriver i can't do anything with and i have to order a Y1. Hopefully that is accurate.

Soooo... unless your HTC One MAX is completely different from the Sprint one i'm trying to replace the back on, both the Y0 and Y1 screw drivers are WRONG for this phone. They are both a bit too big to work on the screws. Now I've bought TWO screw drivers from you guys that were incorrect. Guess i'm gonna need to go out and buy a tri-wing screw driver set.

You need a #Y00 which is smaller then a #Y0 and #Y1 .

The site tells you to use a #Y00 and it does work for any HTC One Max
