Make sure that you power off the phone before beginning.
Remove the back cover by placing the plastic opening tool on the bottom left side of the device and gently prying up.
There is a small slit that fits the plastic opening tool perfectly on the left side.
Insert the plastic opening tool into the indent at the bottom of the battery and lift up. Fully remove the battery with your fingers.
Carefully use the Phillips #00 screwdriver to remove the eleven 3.9mm visible screws found on the back. The screws to be removed are marked with the given indicators.
When you have finished removing all of the screws, place the plastic opening tool in the groove at the bottom left corner of the motherboard cover and lift up.
This part could be more difficult if you have never removed the motherboard cover. If difficulty arises, pry the plastic opening tool into each groove along the edge of the motherboard cover until it releases.
Once a clip is released, you can detach the motherboard cover with your fingers and set aside.
Carefully place the plastic opening tool under the ribbons where the cables are connecting and lift up to detach the cables.
Keep in mind to be careful with the ribbons, because they are small components and important for the device's functionality.
The third photo attached depicts what the ribbons look like when they are successfully detached.
Fully remove the motherboard by prying upward with the plastic opening tool.
This step will be quite simple if all the ribbons have been detached correctly.
Use the plastic opening tool to peel off the sticker.
Gently use the plastic opening tool to set the tab free. This tab is used to hold the screen in place.
The screen is held with adhesive, so use the iOpener to apply heat to the device.
Once you applied the Opener on the device, use the plastic opening tool or opening pick to pry the screen free.
When working with electronics, it's important to use ESD-safe tools to avoid accidental damage to the device. The regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible. Also, beware of sharp edges on a broken screen. Once the broken screen has been set free, put in the screen replacement.
