  • Work your way around counterclockwise and carefully pry the plastic tabs open one by one.

What could you use instead of an opening pick??

    • Be careful with the flex cable at the right hand side.

  • Twist the opening pick to lever the back cover away and loosen it from the adhesive.

  • When the back cover is freed from the adhesive you can pop it off by hand completely.

  • On the bottom of the phone remove the following screws:

    • Three 2.9 mm Phillips #00 screws

    • Four 3.8 mm Phillips #00 screws

  • Now you can grab the loudspeaker unit and take it out.

  • Remove the nine Phillips #00 screws that secure the metal shield plate.

    • If there are any water indicators on top of the screws remove them to ensure a proper seating for your driver.

  • Do not remove the shield plate yet, it is attached by a connector and an adhered cable.

  • Use a spudger to disconnect the fingerprint sensor from the motherboard.

  • Peel the NFC antenna cable off of the metal plate.

can we just remove NFC antenna and dont want to install int back?

  • Disconnect the motherboard flex cable on both ends and take it away.

  • Peel off the NFC antenna from the battery.

    • Be careful not to rip or crease the antenna.

    • If you are just removing the battery to get to the display, you can leave the NFC on the battery.

  • Unplug the battery connector.

  • Slide the spudger under the battery at the place shown in the picture and pry it loose slowly .

    • Be careful not to damage the display flex cable that runs underneath the battery in the center.

Bonjour j'ai réalisé toutes les etapes mais mon telephone ne se charge plus.que faire ?

Bonjour ! Alors deux options sont possibles :

1) la batterie était complètement vide et cela prend du temps avant que le téléphone s’allume et affiche que la batterie est en train de charger.

2) vérifiez que les connexions des nappes à l’intérieur, surtout celle de cette étape. Cette nappe relie en effet le circuit inférieur au supérieur, fait donc le lien entre la batterie et le port de recharge.

Bonne chance !

There is an extra step where you need to remove the cover of the board at the top of the phone in order to remove the NFC antenna which is not described in this guide. Better watch this

Cercando di rimouorere l'adesivo dell'nfc si è rotto, posso assembrale il telefono senza nfc, ovviamente invalidando questa funzione?

Francesco Staiano - Reply

Si, hai ragione: si può riassemblare il telefono senza l’antenna NFC perdendo questa funzione…

Helpful but now the fingerprint sensor and NFC don’t work, double checked the connector has been replaced correctly any idea on what might have gone wrong?

ben_goold - Reply

Maybe you want to check that the fingerprint sensor connector is properly seated and that the cable is not nicked or ripped. Same goes for the NFC antenna. Check the wiring of the antenna and that the contact pads and springs on the mother board meet.
