The tools you will for this do-it-yourself project are heat gun or hair drier, screen suction cup tool, tweezers, case opening tools or a few poker cards, screwdriver, and a spurge.
The first thing you should do is to remove the battery door. To do this, heat up the back cover of the phone with the use of a heat gun or hair drier for a minute or less. Once the extremely strong battery door adhesive gets slightly loose, carefully insert the case opening tools or the poker cards into the edge of the battery door to widen the gap and to get rid of the adhesive.
The next thing you should do is to remove the rear housing. First, you need to take out the SIM card tray and then detach the 13 screws. Once done, separate the LCD Assembly from the rear housing using the case opening tool and the suction cup tool. And then take out the 3 interchangeable side key flex ribbon cables. Finally, find the wireless charging coil and peel it off.
Next, remove the different parts of the phone. Take out the motherboard by prying up the signal cables from the main board. Once done, remove the ear speaker, LCD screen and digitizer, flex cable connectors of the home button, and then the battery.
Turn the motherboard over. Disconnect the flex cable connector of the charging port, the ear speaker assembly, the microphone, and then the rear facing camera.
Disconnect the charging port assembly and then unscrew the 2 screws located nearby the earphone jack. Slowly and carefully lift up the charging port assembly. Don’t mix in these two screws with the rest as they are smaller in size than the others.
With the help of a plastic spudger tool, carefully lift up the battery. Separate the LCD assembly from the front housing and replace it with a new Digitizer Assembly and LCD and position it in a reverse order.
Now it’s time to put everything back to its position. Be extra carefully in disassembling and assembling your smart phone.
