  • Slowly slide the nylon spudger up the edge the phone till the screen pops out of the body.

My LCD started to let loose using this way to saparate the top and bottom of the phone.

I used a guitar pick and slided it from the bottom to the top like the dude in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV10zyw8...

Didn’t had to use a lot of force this way, and my screen almost didn’t bend !

My screen cracked taking it out following ifixit method . Right when I got to the part where it starts to curve at the top. Just shattered.

  • Peel the screen away from the body. The two parts should be completely separated.

  • Using a finger, carefully take the port out
