    • Disconnect:

      • Touch screen flex cable

      • LCD Display flex cable

      • Charging Dock board flex cable - remove the foam and tape, then flip up the black lock before easing out the flex.

      • Coaxial antena cable - take your time here, be sure to pull the metal connector and not the cable or you risk pulling the cable from the connector.

    • Remove the 2x Torx T4 screws.

    Take care when removing the coax connector. Mine was very tight and I managed to disconnect the coax cable from the connector. Phone is now in the bin :-(

    Also, when removing the charging dock board flex cable, the connector has a black lock arm. Remove the foam pad and tape to reveal the lock. Gently ease the lock arm up then ease the flex out.

    • Remove the display flex cable rubber.

    • Put scotch tape on glass to prevent it from shattering.

    • Use a hair dryer or heat gun and warm the glass to make adhesive soft.

    • Use a cutter or other tool with a sharp edge and start the separating from the bottom side. When you make enough room, continue the operation with a plastic tool.

    • Work slowly and do not force the frame with the display too much.

    • If necessary, warm again the glass with a hairdryer.

    Please display prise

    • Install back the display.

    • Put adhesive tape 2mm on the digitizer.

    • Order the digitizer glass together with an adhesive tape. The replacement is easier.
