How do you reseal the back cover on to the phone?

bmw0208 - Reply

You can take a new back cover sticker to reseal.

Are there other parts in this procedure that need to be resealed, e.g. Loudspeaker?

Hi great guide thank you, made it less daunting than I expected to repair my own phone, and cheaper than getting it repaired by someone else! Phone is as good as new, though I could probably do with some new adhesive, as the guitar picks mess it up a fair bit. You did mention including adhesive though so fair play!

@bernhard you don’t need to reseal anything apart from the back, although the camera flash does have a small amount of adhesive behind it when you lift that part up, though doesn’t seem to be messed up too much
