iPhone 4 Home Button Replacement

2 hours


My Problem

2x iphone 4 broken home button

My Fix

first iphone; fail

broke one of the cables on the touch screen when reassambling the device

I won't do this kind of repair again, it's all really tiny and fragile

it's more difficult than you think

also, I had to pay extra import tax

all this together was it an expensive repair (I've let the screen replace somewhere)

the second iphone was a complete succes, also no tax to be payed, the package of the second home button was not that big... holds only the button, not any tools

nice manual!

My Advice

after installing the new button, DON'T RUSH

this is the most difficult, the reassambling
