Have a nice reading.

    • After removing the back cover, use a torx T5 to remove all screws at the back

    • Use an opening tool or plastic spuged to remove the outer frame.

    • First we're going to remove the battery

    • Using a plastic spudger, remove the battery connector from its socket.

    • The battery will come off the motherboard when you put a little bit of pressure under it.

    • Don't bend the battery too much

  3. Motorola Moto G 1st Generation Teardown: étape 3, image 1 de 1
    • The naked motherboard will reveal 2 connectors (apart from the battery-socket)

    • This is the front-cam

    • This is the digitizer/LCD flex

    • To remove the camera, use a pair of tweezers to remove the tape

    • Next, use a plastic spudger to open up the socket.

    • Pull the camera up (out of the lens-socket) and pull so the flex will come out of it's socket

    • To remove the LCD/Digitizer connection from its socket, remove the blue silicone cover

    • Next, use a plastic spudger to open the socket-lock

    • Carefully remove the flex cable.

    • Although this flex seems to exist in 2 parts, it's actually removable as one. Only the wide flex has to be disconnected.

    Hey I'm curious about the lcd flex, what the second connector (smaller one) are used to? the touchscreen or the lcd?

    • Now, it's only the motherboard that's left.

    • Use a fine plastic tool to pull the main board out

    • There are no screws at this step

    • Never put too much stress on the motherboard, find other places to put pressure if it doesn't cooperate immediately

  7. Motorola Moto G 1st Generation Teardown: étape 7, image 1 de 1
    • All done

    • The earpiece remains in the screen assembly. Take care when removing it from the screen. Push gently on it from the screen-side to lift it out.

    which is the HDD component on the mother board?

The procedure is very simple, but i realise that take off all the screws is a little bit difficult. As well, remove the motherboard that is attached to the plate behind the screen.

Just replaced the broken screen on my XT1039. Be aware XT1032,XT1033, XT1039 - the screen components are all the same. I bought the screen/frame/digitizer as one unit for the XT1032. It was relatively straight-forward with a bit of care and attention in certain areas. After you've taken the 14 screws out the rest of the phone is basically glued together with sticky-strips. I followed the advice on a You-tube video and used a hair dryer to heat up the ribbon cables and to loosen the earpiece. Phone now fully functional - hooray! Thanks to all on this forum!

I ordered a T5 Torx screwdriver after reading this guide, but it's too big for the screws in my XT1039. I guess a T4 is the correct one.

Rob Fuller - Réponse

Just to confirm, a T4 Torx screwdriver is the correct one for a XT1039.

Hi, I have a query. My phone Moto G (1st Gen) is not starting only the white notification light blinks when pressing power button. I tried to get it repaired in a shop but he told me that there is an issue with the BCM IC (Battery Chemistry ....), he told me that he was unable to find it in the market. Can any one please suggest me where can i get this and is there anything else that can be done(Please dont suggest to buy a new phone) As this is the first phone i bought with my first salary. Please help me out with this. Thanks.

Were can I find a guide about how to replace the SIM card holder? It seems some pin is broken, the mobile phone works just perfectly except for not reading the sim card

my uncle has toasted one of these units, the usb connector is damaged and his wife passed away recently and this unit had pictures he wants to recover, you wouldnt happen to know which is positive and which is negative on the internal battery cable, I cant charge it and from my understanding cant grab a usb unit from second gen to charge it though im not sure why, its an independent component on the second gen with the same battery so im down to this option

Hi there, thanks for this teardown. My moto g has become useless as a “smartphone” as the wifi has stopped working. It’s my view that as it failed over a period of a couple of weeks becoming progressively less reliable, that the issue is likely a crack in the solder / a failed junction. I would like to try and reflow solder at appropriate junctions, however I have no idea where the wifi receiver /transmitter is and also where the appropriate junctions are - I’m wondering whether anyone would like to make a suggestion or whether anyone knows this? This all happened after phone span out of my pocket at speed on my pedal bike (oops) - I’ve replaced with a 2nd hand moto g now running 4G and have kept the old phone for spares, but it would be great if I could actually fix it… I’m also about to attempt installing android 7 on my “new” motog - motorola don’t support this, so I’ll let you know how it goes if folk are interested…
