Since my screen was shattered, let's face it which is the main reason to replace the screen, it completely came apart around the button. Use of a hair dryer would have been a useful tip, however I don't blow dry my hair and so don't have one. A warm towel just doesn't cut it.
I just need it to work for a few more months until the iPhone 6 comes out.
Thanks for instructions, I ordered the triwing screw driver especially to shoe in my Tb SSD.
This allowed me to disconnect the battery, there were a couple of minor reboot issues, but my main problem is that my battery has stopped charging. The little green light stays on, whilst the battery although acknowledging it is connected isn't charging.
Any tips? People have talked about SMC, which will be first move, followed by reconnecting the battery cable.
Thanks though for the guide a big help, onwards and upwards!
SMC reset did the job.
