I click the power button after every time I look at my phone to preserve the battery. This wore down the power button and it no longer worked. After being frustrated from not being able to turn off my phone and running my battery dead at the same time I decided there had to be an easier and cheaper way than buying a new phone. So I took to the world wide web and found ifixit.
Initially I was pretty intimidated to repair the device because of the cost of replacement if I further damaged it. I detemined the step by step guide was detailed enough that I could complete the repair and it was clutch! The repair went great and my phone works like it is brand new. After I finished I was so proud of myself for fixing such an advanced piece of technology.
None of the recomended drivers that I purchased from ifix it worked on the repair, they did not match any of the screws. So I borrowed a set to complete the repair. The recommended pry tool broke when I pryed the battery out so that was frustrating. I recommend anyone doing this repair to have a set of drivers and a back up pry tool.
Make sure you are review each photo, I did not make sure a connection was loose and tore the ribbon connection, luckily I had purchased the part to fix it!
