    • Remove the SIM card tray from the phone.

    • The SIM card will fall out of the tray easily.

    • When reinserting the SIM card, ensure that it is in the proper orientation relative to the tray.

  3. If your display glass is cracked, tape over the glass to prevent bodily harm and further breakage. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the SIM slot edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

  4. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. This requires a significant amount of force and patience.

    • If the display doesn't readily lift, do some extra prying to separate the last of the adhesive.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as fragile ribbon cables still connect it to the phone's motherboard.

    • Carefully lay the display flat on the table next to the rest of the phone, keeping it close to the phone to avoid straining the display and digitizer cables.

  10. Use the corner of an opening tool to pry up the digitizer cable connector cover. Pry carefully to avoid damaging the cable underneath, or losing the cover itself.

    • Pry carefully to avoid damaging the cable underneath, or losing the cover itself.

    • Remove the connector cover.

  11. Use the point of a spudger to lift the digitizer cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

  24. Make sure all the cables and connectors are clear of the board, and use the flat edge of a spudger to gently lift the bottom of the motherboard. The narrow part of the motherboard is very fragile. If it starts to bend when you lift, stop and make sure there isn't anything holding the board down. The board should lift up without any resistance. Holding the wide part of the motherboard near the SIM card slot, carefully slide the board toward the bottom of the phone while lifting it out of the phone.

Does this method work with the earpiece one as well?

KENGKAN EUNGUMPORN - Antwoord

We don’t have official instructions out for the earpiece speaker, but it’s only accessible underneath the glass panel and antenna assembly on the back of the phone so removing it is a bit different. After removing the motherboard you would have to lift this flex cable from the back of the phone, just enough to separate it from the adhesive holding it down. Then you can carefully pry up the glass panel, and remove antenna assembly and the earpiece speaker underneath. You’ll probably need an iOpener, suction cup, and opening picks to remove the panel and everything underneath—they’re all glued down pretty solidly.
