HTC One X 

Insert a safety pin, or other small  object in the small opening next to the Sim card slot to remove the SIM card.
The Sim Card Slot is located at the top of the rear panel.
Using a plastic opening tool, carefully separate the display screen from the rear panel.
The display assembly is a tight fit therefore the removal must be carried out carefully with firm, constant force being applied around the bottom corners and sides of the panel. Note that the top of the phone is underneath the panel, and will not come out.
If  your display is cracked, take extra caution when separating the display from the rear panel to prevent further breakage.
Set aside the rear panel.
Remove the five screws at the top of the panel using a Phillips head screwdriver.
Two 2.05mm Philips head screws
Three 2.44mm Philips head screws
