    • Don't open the phone all the way, yet. The cable for the standby and volume buttons is still connected to the back cover.

    • Swing open the phone backwards.

    • Use a spudger to disconnect the power- and volume button flex cable.

    The cable is for the standby and volume buttons, not for the fingerprint sensor!

HI, I need to understand why many of us owners of the Huawei P10 has problems with the camera that does not focus or each photo is always blurred and it takes a side kick to fix it temporarily, then I would also know if changing the camera solve the problem. Thank you.

I have replaced the camera in my phone however the replacement does not work. I have seen comments from other people who have had a similar issue such as https://forum.xda-developers.com/p10/hel...

Could this be a firmware related issue? Perhaps the camera firmware in the replacement part is now older than that expected by the firmware in the phone itself?

Does anyone know where to find information about this sort of thing? Whenever I search the Googles I am always taken to generic pages about flashing boot loaders and various versions of Android, not the actual firmware.
