My Problem

The rear camera got damaged after an accident where the iPhone hit the floor a little bit to hard. Even the rear case got damaged. And then the battery only worked for a hour, I desided it was time to do something.

My Fix

Thanks to Ifixit, I got both the "how-to" and the replacement parts. It took a long time - almost 5 hours! The repair did go well, even the tiny parts, but I had to redo something - some connectors who got forgotten (difficult to use the phone when You forgot to connect the cellular data antenna...). But I'm satisfied - the phone is saved from the trashcan - it works as it is brand new!

My Advice

The "how-to" could be a little more informative on how to assemble the iPhone - I got some problems because some of the connectors were hiding under the "main unit". But overall: Can I, can You!

My Problem

The old rear case of an iPhone 5 was bent in the top corner from being dropped, allowing dust inside where the screen was not properly held. The camera was all dusty as a result.

My Fix

The repair went well. I meant to take pictures but, as so often happens when I repair things, I got too involved in it and forgot.

It took a long time to do because it requires a lot of attention and care.

My Advice

Next time I would buy a lighted magnifying glass to use.

The new case fit great, all screw holes where they should be and in the end it worked fine.

The spudgers I have were a necessary thing, along with a pair of needle pointed tweezers. A clear work space and a magnetic mat are highly recommended.

Patience and attention to detail are crucial.
