Flip the phone over so it is lying on its back.

Insert a plastic opening tool or a plastic opening pick in the space between the screen and the frame and slide along the right side of the phone to loosen the adhesive.

Gently lift the display assembly away from the frame until there is a small gap and leave the first opening pick in the bottom right corner next to your home button.

Insert a second opening pick and slide it up to the top left corner of the phone by loosening the adhesive beneath the display.

Do not insert the opening pick more than 1/8 inch. There are some components that can be harmed.
