How difficult to remove main camera?

I'm really excited about getting an HTC Evo 4G when my current contract's up in July, but company policy is no cameras at work, including on cell phones. Phones with disabled cameras, however, are permitted. Thanks to your teardown, I can see that the forward facing camera is pretty easy to remove, but it's still hard to tell how difficult it would be to remove the main camera from the circuit board. Is it as simple as lifting the lens assembly off some kind of pin connection? Thanks, and great site!

The front-facing camera is easily removable. However, the rear-facing camera is soldered on to the logic board. That will require more finesse and care.

Perhaps he could simply place an obstruction over the cam and then reassemble it?

He could potentially put a piece of tape over the lens. But IMO, having an Evo 4G without a camera is like having a fudge sundae without fudge...its just not the same haha

Haha, well if that's what the OP needs for work and wants to use Sprint then it looks like the best option. Think of it as a nexus one with a smaller screen and piece of tape over the camera

The good thing is he doesn't need to worry about the flash!

Relatively easy, the camera has a metal case over it, slide a small object into it, bend it out slightly, and lift off the metal case, the camera is mounted into a slot, which is what you see soldered to the board, once removed, it causes the camera based apps to hang and subsequently force close even with the front installed, my front cam, the harder of the two to remove, is now a "sensor" for the auto dimmer when asked. You need a size 5 torx to get the six screws on the back out

Well you'll have to remove both camera's, but it seems easy yes, you just have to disconnect the ribbons and lift it out, as simple as that.

Be warned however that there may be minor issues with the case and internals being exposed, so I suggest you cover the phone with a case that covers everything.
