    • The back cover is sticked to the phone with adhesive tape. Is good to use some hot air to do removing of the back cover easier.

  2. Start opening from the bottom side.
    • Start opening from the bottom side.

    • For separating the back cover, use only plastic tools.

    Be careful around the bottom corners and edges, that you don't put your guitar pick in to deep and break a pin off the logic board.

    There are 3 types of screens! Sony, Sharp and AUO (or something). Look at the color of the flexwire before you order or install. I made the mistake and burned the backlight coil.

    • Disconnect one by one:

      • the Touchscreen flex cable

      • the Volume buttons & Mic flex cable

      • the Dock connector flex cable

    • Use a plastic tool to unstick the battery.

    • Be careful, there are flex cables under the battery. At the last picture in this step you can see the cables and the place were is adhesive tape.

    • Now you can separate the Dock flex cable.

    • At the beginning you can use a cutter to make a room for the plastic tool.

    • During the procedure of the separating the LCD Display & Touchscreen from the frame, you can use again hot air. This will make separating more easy.

    • The original adhesive tape is left on the frame, but I prefer to put new. I put it onto the original.

    • Gently assemble the screen to the frame.
