Unlock the screen's ribbon cable.

The mechanism that locks the ribbon cable in place for the screen is very weak, so be careful.

To remove the screen, you have to flip the phone over and let it fall out slowly into your hand. Be careful not to put any tension on the ribbon cable.

Then pull the screen away from the ribbon cable connector and it will slide out easily. Do not use excessive force.
