Once you have sliced around the phone, twist an opening pick in one of the edges to help separate the back cover from the frame.

Lift the back cover slowly. Use opening picks to slice any remaining adhesive.

Remove the back cover.

During reassembly, this is a good point to power on your phone and test all functions before you seal the back cover in place. Be sure to power your phone back down completely before you continue working.

Follow this guide to reinstall the back cover, transfer and install the camera bezel, and replace the adhesive.

If desired, you may reinstall the back cover without replacing the adhesive. Remove any large chunks of adhesive that might prevent the back cover from sitting down flush. After installation, heat the back cover and apply pressure to secure it.
