HTC Trophy

To disassemble the HTC Trophy, begin by removing the back cover.
Find the notch in the cover, insert the plastic opening tool, and pry up to release the clips holding the back cover down.
With the back cover removed, use the plastic opening tool to remove the battery from the HTC Trophy.
Four T5 torx screws and one small Phillips screw (#00) secure the rear portion of the case. Locate and remove these screws with the appropriate screwdrivers.
To remove the rear portion of the case, insert the plastic opening tool in the seam and work your way around the perimeter of the Trophy.
After beginning the separation at the seam, the plastic clips are easily separated with the opening tool and a slight twist of the case.
In order for the motherboard to be detached from the phone, a few connections and screws need to be removed. Begin with the connections for the display assembly. The first is a locking socket connection that secures the LCD connection in the phone. Make sure you flip up the lock to release the cable and then remove it from its socket.
The second ribbon cable is for the touch screen/ front panel. It has the same locking socket that secures the LCD connection. Make sure you flip up the lock to release the cable and then remove it from its socket.
Locate and remove the two T5 torx screws, located at the bottom of the motherboard, that secure it to the display assembly.
Locate and remove the single Phillips screw (#00). It is the last of the motherboard’s securing screws.
With all of the connections detached and the screws out of the motherboard, you can now remove the motherboard from the HTC Trophy.

The earpiece speaker is adhered to the back of the display assembly. Use the spudger to pry the speaker out of its location and remove it from the Trophy.
The rear speaker is adhered to the rear portion of the case. Use the spudger to pry the speaker out of its location and remove it from the Trophy.
To begin the process of removing the touch screen, use the heat gun/blow dryer to soften the adhesive that secures the touch screen onto the display assembly.

The touch screen needs to be separated from the display assembly. The easiest way to begin the separation is to use the torx screwdriver. From the back of the touch screen, insert the screwdriver, and push it through the front-facing camera hole.
The push from behind starts the separation of the touch screen. Use the plastic opening tool to finish the separation of the touch screen from the display assembly.
The touch screen cannot be separated completely because there is still a ribbon wire securing it to the display assembly.
The LCD screen needs to be removed next. To remove the LCD, use the heat gun/blow dyer to now soften the adhesive securing this part in place.
Using the spudger, pry the LCD screen up and out of its location in the frame. Be careful not to use too much force! If your LCD is not damaged, it can crack if you are careless during this step.
You can now remove the LCD screen and the touch screen from the HTC Trophy.
