Introduction

The first step to accessing the Samsung Gear VR's internal components is to remove the front phone mount.

Caution is required while working on the headset as a wire harness connects the USB adapter to the motherboard. Care should be taken not to put any strain on the wire and to open the headset from right to left.

Remove the front cover to access a plate that holds the phone in place during use. Remove the four corner screw covers with a metal spudger to reveal four screws. Remove the sticker located at the top center to reveal two additional screws.
