Step 1 — Home Button ¶
Insert the spudger into the small opening underneath the black home button assembly and pry it off the casing.
Lift up to detach the black assembly.

Use tweezers to grab the orange connector that is attached to side the home button assembly and lift to remove it from its adhesive.

Using two spudgers, place the pointed tips at each end of the U-shaped snap ring located under where the home button assembly was.
Remove the snap ring by pushing down with both pointed objects on each side of the ring simultaneously, it should pop off.
