Tools You Will Need:
- Heat gun
- Suction cup tool
- Phillips 00 screwdriver
- Metal prying tool
Power off your phone and remove the SIM card tray
Remove the back panel, using a heating gun to carefully loosen the adhesive.
Generate a gap between the back panel and the rest of the body with the help of suction cup tool. Insert a thin metal prying tool into the gap to help cut away the adhesive. This process takes a bit of time and you will want to move carefully so as not to damage the back glass.
Once the back panel is off, unscrew the 18 Phillips screws to remove the back part from the mid-frame of the phone.
Disconnect the motherboard connections, including the LCD display connector, touch screen digitizer connector, proximity sensor, battery connector and ear speaker connector.
Release the connector beneath the motherboard and disconnect the two cables on the motherboard. After disconnecting all the connections, carefully remove the motherboard with tweezers.
With the help of a nylon spudger, carefully remove the battery. Note: the battery is held in place with adhesive and may require a little extra effort to remove. You can also use the heat gun for a few seconds to help loosen the adhesive.
Remove the components from the front housing, including the ear speaker, vibrating motor and sensor. Note: The ear speaker flex cable is fragile; handle it carefully to avoid causing any damage.
Remove the microphone from the top of the logic board and remove the rear-facing camera.
Heat the LCD assembly using the heat gun to release the front housing. Note: this can be a tedious process. Stick with it and be patient.
The final step is using fresh adhesive to secure the new screen and placing all the components back into the phone in reverse order.
