    • Unscrew the 0.266 inch top-left screw with a T6 Torx Screwdriver.

    • Be sure to remove the stylus in order to access the screw.

    Use a T5 Torx screwdriver instead of a T6. T6 is too big.

    I found T5 too large as well. T4 seeems to work

    • Turn the phone 90 degrees to the right, so the screen is facing the right side.

    • Use a spudger to carefully separate the back panel from the front panel to access all the various components inside the phone.

    • Separate the covers from the left side of the device as indicated in the picture. The right side contains orange ribbons that are easily damaged.
