DISASSEMBLING PROCEDURE

Slightly warm-up the front panel with blower
Attach a heavy-duty suction cup to the lower half of the rear glass panel.
Secure the suction cup by raising the hinged handle and flipping the latch to clamp both handles in place.
The following steps involve using an opening pick to separate the rear panel from the midframe. If the adhesive is too strong, reapply heat with the iOpener.
Using the suction cup, apply pressure to the middle section of the panel while pulling up the lower edge by pivoting your wrist.
Once you've opened a large enough gap, insert an opening pick between the rear glass and the midframe.
Slide the opening pick around the bottom left corner of the rear glass panel.
Slide the pick down the power button side of the phone.
Slide the opening pick along the top of the phone.
Slide the opening pick down along the volume buttons side of the phone.
Pull up on the rear glass panel while holding down the midframe to separate the components.

Insert an opening pick between the rear panel and the midframe.
Slide the pick along the top of the phone to loosen the remaining adhesive. Twist the pick to separate the two pieces.

Pull the rear panel up and away to completely separate it.
Remove the thirteen 3.5mm Phillips #00 screws securing the midframe to the phone.

Insert a plastic opening pick between the case and the battery.
Be careful to keep the pick as flat as possible to avoid bending the battery, which may damage it and cause it to release dangerous chemicals.
Push the pick further in to separate the battery from the phone. If the battery is too strongly adhered for the opening pick, place a warm iOpener over the battery to loosen the adhesive.

Do not pry against the motherboard or you may damage the phone.
Remove the battery from the phone.
