Step 1 — Display Installation ¶
Peel away and remove all the old display adhesive from the body of your phone.
Use the point of your spudger to scour away and remove any smaller bits of adhesive that remain stuck.
For best results, clean the area underneath the removed adhesive with isopropyl alcohol to help prep the surface so the new adhesive bonds more strongly.
Step 2 ¶
If yours came with a paper liner, peel it away and remove it.
Step 3 ¶
Peel off and discard any remaining paper liner, exposing the adhesive on one side.
Step 4 ¶
Hold the adhesive sheet with the exposed adhesive facing down, and carefully align it into the lower edge of the phone.
When it's correctly aligned, lower the rest of the adhesive sheet into the phone.
Step 5 ¶
Firmly press the adhesive into place.
Use the flat edge of your spudger to press along the edges and hard-to-reach areas.
Step 6 ¶
Peel off and discard the plastic liner, exposing the display adhesive.
Step 7 ¶
Before sealing the display in place, connect the flex cables for the display and fingerprint sensor, and then power your phone on.
Test all functions to make sure your repair was successful before sealing up the display.
Step 8 ¶
When your repair is tested and complete, press the display firmly into place and remove any plastic liners from the screen.
