This process will almost always destroy the OLED display panel. Only proceed if you are replacing an already-broken screen.
Apply a suction cup to the heated edge of the screen.
If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.
Pull up on the suction cup with strong, steady force to create a gap between the screen and the frame.
Depending on the age of your phone, this may be difficult. If you are having trouble, apply heat to the edge and try again.
Insert the point of an opening pick into the gap.
Depending on the age of your phone, this may take significant force. If you are having trouble, apply more heat and try again.
