Introduction
While disassembling my S4 Active to replace my rear camera, I accidentally broke my mid-frame. ( broken mid-frame = no longer water resistant ) This is due to the fact that I couldn't find a complete disassembly guide for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active to show me the proper way to remove it. I've got new parts coming in the mail. So while I wait, I figured I would make this guide so that no one else has to damage their phone! [ … ] All these tools are not necessarily needed. I did it all with a philips, flathead, and a sewing needle![
