      Step 1 — Preparing the rear glass for removal

      Insert the phone into the Laser Separator "Blue Light" to treat the rear glass with the laser in order to easily remove it later.

      Step 2 — Removal of the rear glass cover

      To remove the real glass we will need to use a sharp blade.

      Step 3 — Cleaning

      Before cleaning the black objects we will need to use a small spatula to clear out the broken glass along the edge of the panel.

      Step 4 — Adding new adhesive

      In this step, we will add fresh adhesive along the edges, and inside empty spaces.

      Step 5 — Installing the rear glass

      Install the new glass, then use four screen vise clamps to apply pressure.
