- Power button living dead and decaying.
A slide-push from the left kinda sorta still worked now and then. I had to rely on the physically disabled options to emulate it by software and lock my phone.
- Volume down button deceased.
Very convenient when you have to lower the volume quickly...
It was to much to bear anymore.
- Some of the screws just won't come out easily.
Those at the far top of the casing were a pain to get out.
+ There are much more different screws that i would have thought. Not even sure i put back the right length in every hole...
+ The replacement cable seemed too long. I had to make it loop under the mainboard and back again (S-shape) to absorb that overlength.
Except that, everything went smoothly.
+ Philips screws == Small flat screwdriver.
The Philips screwdriver form the "Pro Tech Toolkit" is strangely not quite fitting.
It screws the screw head and then you're screwed ;-)
+ Sort the screws as soon as you remove them and write down who's who. Always.
There are something like 5 different lengths and same diameter in there.
+ The battery is very well glued, so find the weak spot and lift by small touches from there on.
If needed use the mainboard as a pivot to have more lever as you lift the battery farther but keep being careful and gentle with your phone, no crushing!
