  1. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered. This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Make sure to keep all the screws organized as you are taking the phone apart. They are different sizes.

  3. Remove the metal handle from the suction cup. It's easier and safer to grip the suction cup's base instead of the metal handle.

    • Be very careful when opening the iPhone so that the cables under the display are not severed.

    • There is a rubber gasket between the silver front bezel and black display assembly. A bit of force is required in this step to separate the iPhone's display assembly.

    • Use a small suction cup near the Home button to gently pull up the lower portion of the iPhone's display assembly.

    • If the display assembly is too damaged to allow the suction cup to adhere, tape with a strong adhesive such as duct tape may be used.

  4. The display assembly is still connected to the iPhone by several cables, so don't try to remove it entirely just yet.

    • Ribbon cable "1" is connected with a plug style connector. The block at the end of the cable is the plug which is simply pushed into a socket on the circuit board. No other locking mechanism is used.

    • Use a spudger to disconnect the black ribbon cable labeled "2."

  8. Ribbon cable "3" is held in place by a FPC style connector. You must unlock this connector before sliding the ribbon cable out. The locking mechanism is on the opposite side of where the cable is inserted - it swivels upwards 90 degrees. Use a plastic spudger to lift the locking mechanism. The FPC locking latch is very delicate and is typically a different color than the body of the connector. (see the detail image of FPC connector open and closed)

    • Keeping the tape from sticking to itself can be tricky. We recommend placing the tape on a wax-coated piece of paper (any sticker backing will do).

Be very careful opening the display. On my phone, connector #4 was stuck to the inside surface of the display. The display was difficult to open and released suddenly. Although the display didn't open as far as shown in picture #2, and certainly less than shown in picture #3, when it released, it tore connector #4 completely away from the dock connector assembly. So, in addition to needing a new display assembly to fix a broken home button, I now need to replace the dock connector as well.
