My Problem

I dropped my daughters iphone 4 which broke the back glass.

My Fix

Repair was easy. After removing the 2 specials screws with the screwdrivers supplied, I slid off the bad back panel (slides toward camera side of phone to remove) and then slid on new replacement. It's as easy as that.

My Advice

I am not a fan of philips screws as they don't have the same torque and the head rounds out easier than star/torque screws. The original Iphone screws are 5 star pattern screws. You do not need to over tighten and crank on them, just snug them back up...but the 5 star pattern screws provide easier tightening with less effort than philips, so I re-used the original screws. Which screws you use is up to the end user as this kit will supply new philips screws along with a 5 star pattern and philips screwdriver.
