Step 1 — Main LCD Screen

Remove screw covers (4 in total) using the spudger.

Note: Because the bottom two screw covers are attached with an adhesive, you will not be
able to replace them when you reassemble the phone.
Step 2

Unscrew screws (4 in total) using the Phillips #00 screwdriver

Set screws aside carefully as they are small and easy to lose.

Tweezers may be useful for removing loosened screws.

Insert the second plastic opening tool under the faceplate and slide it around the perimeter,
detaching the faceplate from the phone.

WARNING: Do not detach or tear any wires when completing this step.

Using the spudger, carefully separate the black discs (speaker and microphone) from the
inside surface of the phone.

Note: The smaller black disc is glued down, so you may need to use some force to detach
it. Both disks will still remain attached via wires.
Step 6

WARNING: The copper frame is attached to the phone at the hinge. Do not tear the frame.

Gently lift the copper frame surrounding the LCD screen.
