Thanks for the guide, it worked very well.

Maybe it's worth mentioning that there's a sticker at the back of the battery and you shouldn't be afraid to just pull the battery out.

Thanks for the guide, however my ear piece speaker now rattles when i play music at medium levels. I have tried installing additional adhesive to it, but still cracks.
