    • Remove the volume and power button cable.

    • Take out the motherboard by lifting the bottom part first.

    • Pay attention to the cables, so they don't rip when staying stuck to the motherboard.

    • On the back of the motherboard there is a thermal pad (pink rubber-like gob) for heat dissipation. If this thermal pad broke or is too dried out you might want to replace it with a new one.

    • Changing the display can be done without removing the battery. But for safety reasons we recommend removing it as seen in the battery guide by pulling the adhesive tab and prying it out with a plastic card.

    • Heat up the top, bottom and both sides of the display with an iOpener to soften the adhesive.

    • Thread the cable through the midframe.

    • Open the display all the way and remove it from the midframe.

    • Make sure to test the new display and remove any old residue from the adhesive before reassembly.
