Twist off all 14 screws together and remove the back frame easily. But the screws feature different lengths, you'd better remember their positions.

Just for completion as I made the same mistake today.

The longer screws are at the top and the bottom (2x4 screws) and the shorter ones (2x3) at the left and right side of the case.

Took me some time to find out which one goes to which position.

My Moto G just burned with 12 V from a cheap auto-recharger. But I lost very important data on the 8 GB memory. Is there a possible way to save the data?
