While holding the battery release button, pull the bottom end of the phone out of the body.

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:

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.

  • Peel the screen away from the body. The two parts should be completely separated.

  • Once the screen has been separated from the back of the phone, now you can remove the motherboard.

  • Insert the plastic opening tool between the screen-ribbon-connector and the motherboard, then pull up. It should pop out easily.

Don't forget to take out the speaker and the rubber parts that need to be transferred to the other frame.

I just did a screen replacement following this guide. The #000 phillips fit a lot better than the #00, but otherwise this guide was great. It took about 15 minutes to do from start to finish and I'd say it was one of the more easy replacements I've had to do, since there were minimal components that had to be transferred over from the old to the new screen.

this is great - success - thank you. A little confusing between step 4 and 5 as I think you reverse angles on the photos - in step 4 the motherboard is right under where you have the opening tool and in step 5 you have the spudger on the other side.

one of the 2 screws from the bottom pinged across the room when I did this and I'm pretty sure I don't have any hope of finding it perhaps until I move house. Any ideas on where I can find another? UK based. replacebase doesn't have them. It works fine without, just would like it screwed together properly...

Followed these steps no problem. Only heads up: Make sure that the replacement screen you buy comes a speaker, or make sure you move your old one over. This step isn't shown in the above, and was required for me.

I think the guide could be a bit more completed. Its vague and doesn't seem like a full repair guide.

Jericho Ortiz - Réponse

seems vague at first look, but there is really nothing more to add expect changing the speaker to the new display.

Screen replaced bit now no Wi-Fi

Is there any solutions to this ?

I have tried bending the contact pins out but this has made no difference

There are components that must be heated to be removed after the last step of this process.

I lost the notification LED light after the replacement of the screen, toggling in setting has no effect. Don’t know if it’s the replacement part or something I did.
