    • Before you begin, discharge your iPhone battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Your iPhone 4 rear cover may have either two #000 Phillips screws or Apple's 5-Point "Pentalobe" screws (second image). Check which screws you have, and ensure you also have the correct screwdriver in order to remove them.

    • Remove the two 3.6 mm Pentalobe or Phillips #000 screws next to the dock connector.

    • Be sure the driver is well seated when removing Pentalobe screws, they are very easy to strip.

The replacement part for the iPhone 4 rear panel has two thin, clear overlays on the inside surface--a larger one that runs the full length, and a small one that only covers the lens. These should be removed prior to installation. Also, the first rear panel replacement I got from iFixit was not an exact fit and would not easily "click" into place. They replaced it for free and the second one clicked right in.

On step 3 when replacing the back panel with a new one, they aren't kidding about removing ALL the protective slips. There's THREE of them.

1), the obvious back slip that protects the new back.

2). the one inside the back protecting the side with the camera lens

3). the little square one OVER the lens itself.

First time I tried to reinstall my back, that tiny little square over the lens prohibited my ability to actually get the back on completely. My husband jammed it for me, but the screws still wouldn't take. It's amazing that these things are so precise that the tiny little film on the lens would make it that much tighter.

Anyways, hope that helps somebody. :)
