Avec un doigt, soulevez délicatement, mais sans l'enlever, le bouton home depuis le côté opposé pour séparer de l'écran un des coins du joint du bouton home.

N'enlevez pas le bouton home complètement, un coin suffit pour pouvoir le décoller avec une spatule par la suite.

Le joint en caoutchouc autour du bouton home est très fin. Pour éviter qu'il ne se déchire, nous vous conseillons de le chauffer très légèrement.
