    My LCD started to let loose using this way to saparate the top and bottom of the phone.

    I used a guitar pick and slided it from the bottom to the top like the dude in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV10zyw8...

    Didn’t had to use a lot of force this way, and my screen almost didn’t bend !

    My screen cracked taking it out following ifixit method . Right when I got to the part where it starts to curve at the top. Just shattered.

    I found it easier to run the tool or a pick along the sides, and then sort of hinge the thing open at the top rather than running completely around the screen. It gets a little dicey where the glass starts to curve.

    The camera is attached to the frame with adhesive- use a nylon screen opening tool or a spludger to help lift the camera off of the body. Tilt it out at a 45 degree angle to clear the PCB and you're ready for replacement!

    I found it easier to use some guitar picks to separate the screen from the body. I lifted the screen away from the body using a prying tool, then insert the guitar pick in the gap. I worked it along the seam until I got to the top of the phone, then worked on the other side.

This worked great and took me about 10 minutes!

Great instructions. This was my first time taking apart any phone. Everything went smoothly and my camera now works! thank you

the camera is held down with sticky tape and I wasn’t comfortable pulling hard under the processing board, so I pulled the six screws holding that down and removed it first. Unfortunately for me the new camera still doesn’t focus…

Ray White - Réponse

This worked great for me. I was a little nervous prying on my phone, especially when I heard the first POP. But after that, it was not hard at all. The new camera focuses great for me now and I can get back to taking great pictures with my G5!

Thanks for the detailed instructions, tools and affordable part!

You may want to mention that the original camera is glued in. It takes a bit of prying to pop it out.

I can’t pry the screen off with the plastic tools I purchased with ifixit. what now?
