  1. You can remove the outer cover on the back of the phone by using a plastic opening tool. After removal the inner back cover will be exposed as shown. This part is moderately difficult, especially if you've never taken the outer back cover off before this point. It may take you several tries, but please be patient. The cover is surprisingly flexible, but not enough to withstand a lot of pressure.

  2. Shut down the phone.
    • Shut down the phone.

    • Push SIM card until it pops out.

    • Remove SIM card.

    • In some version of this phone, a microSD memory card can be installed. If so, you must also remove these cards.

    • Be careful as to not damage the microSD memory card. Unlike the SIM card, pushing this in may not spring release, as there may not be an eject mechanism.

    • If there is no spring release eject mechanism, hopefully your microSD card has a ridge/raised edge that you can push on with your fingernail or plastic/rubber tool to push the card out. This may be difficult - be patient and do not use excessive force/sharp tools that could cause permanent damage and permanent loss of data.

  3. Using a T5 Torx screwdriver head, take out the 14 screws (3.5 mm diameter and 5 mm long) that hold the back plate in place. Make sure to keep all of the screws together, as they are very easily lost. The magnetic project mat or a container is a great way to keep all the little metal screws as well as other small metal pieces from being lost.

    • The buttons are not secured in anyway, so securing the back inner cover before turning the device over or jostling the device is a good idea. This will ensure buttons stay in place.

Step 4 "We highlighted buttons with pink circles for easy recognition." except that there's no pink circles. ummm?

Patrick Lee - Antwoord

Changes have been made since my group finished this project by others not associated with the group. I'm assuming an ifixit editor is trying to stay busy making necessary and unnecessary changes. Not sure why they removed highlighting circles.
