Why do I have to take out the MoBo? For me it looks like the camera connector is accessible without removing everything, one less step to swap screws etc...

I haven't done this procedure yet, but it looks like there is a metal tab that protrudes from the top of the camera module that is tucked under the PCB.

I am thinking of doing this, did anyone have problems getting the screen apart from the phone and is there no cable connecting the screen to the rest of it? Also my lens cover is also broken can that be fixed? thanks guys in advance

It worked pretty well for me, but I had to use a metal 0.3mm Guitar Pick for the very first opening step, as neither the plastic opening tools nor plastic picks worked for me.

@jackhutchinson60: The back cover is taken off first (which has no eletrical connections) and then the motherboard is removed, but it’s all screws and plugs, so no problem there. According to youtube lens cover fixes are cheap and doable as well.

Instructions were really clear, thank you. It was all straightforward and I completed it in about 15 minutes. The screws are tiny so I recommend a sheet or similar on the table first. I also had to scrape off some white 'tip-ex' type paint from one of the screw heads. I didn't think I'd need the screw drivers as I'd already got some for my glasses but I'm so glad I bought them as they are different. Package came within a week to the UK.

I'm very pleased with the whole process. Thank you.

Very easy to follow! Great ten buck fix. The hardest part was definitely opening the phone, but with a little elbow grease it is possible. I used the iFixit opening tools, and would recommend getting a few, as you will dull some out at first. Overall, great guide. Took me about 90 minutes (mostly from trying to pry open the phone.
