    • Before applying the new graphite sheet, it's helpful to see how it will be oriented on your phone.

    • Hold the graphite sheet so the clear liner is on the bottom and place it over your phone to find the proper alignment.

    • The sections of the graphite sheet with three flaps will go over the rear camera assembly.

    • Carefully lay the rest of the sheet onto your phone.

    • Use your fingers to firmly press down and secure the graphite sheet to your phone.

    • Be very careful not to damage the spring contacts near the edges of your phone.
