impossible de décoller l’écran de la tablette

Le tuto est parfaitement clair et précis. Un grand Merci.

Néanmoins il faut reconnaître que cette opération n’est pas simple du tout et qu’elle n’est pas sans risque, même en étant très méticuleux.

Pour ouvrir la coque, il faut obligatoirement un minimum de matériel adapté et malgré cela, c’est une galère !

Pour info sur la Galaxy tab s2 votre tuto est faux. Merci j'ai cassé le haut de mon écran. Grace à un autre site jai pu voir qu'il faut enlever le capot arrière pour accéder à la batterie
