Once the back plate is off you will need to detach the frames that hold in the battery. Locate and remove the screws (Screws are marked in the image). You can then pull the frame off with ease once the screws have been removed. Remove the six 3.5mm Phillips #000 black screws using a securing part of the back panels. Remove the seven 2.5mm Phillips #000 black screws securing part of the back panels.

No need to remove the lower part.

Use a nylon spudger to pry upwards to detach the ribbon that's connecting the battery to the motherboard.

Broken doesn't stand a chance.
Insert a nylon or metal spudger underneath the battery at any point. Then slide the spudger around all the edges to loosen it. The battery can now be easily lifted out of the frame. Glue will be holding down the backside of the battery.

Before removing the battery, it is better to hold the phone in a warm place, so that the adhesive tape is easier to remove.

The dock connector is firmly adhered to the frame below it. To prevent damage to the phone use minimal force when removing. Using tweezers slowly start prying upwards at the locations shown in the images. After carefully prying around the edges of the dock connector, it can now lifted upwards out of the frame.

Très difficile de retirer le pcb avec le prise mini USB et impossible de des souder directement bien sur. Le buzzer est justement mal placé et gène horriblement. Environ 1h pose/dépose.
