  • Remove the five 3.9 mm Phillips #000 screws securing the midframe to the display assembly.

The three upper -next to the SIM blocks- screws are a bit longer that the three others. It is important to keep them like this because if not, they will not tight to the whole.

There are only 5 screws. I see none longer than others.

You're right, I've just done it and it's true. Thanks!

  • The midframe is secured to the display assembly by several small plastic clips.

  • Use an opening pick to carefully pry the midframe away from the display assembly.

  • Start just below the volume rocker and work your way down toward the bottom of the phone, freeing the plastic clips along the side.

No need to be TOO careful. Just remove the whole thing, no stress.

Some stupid person put a sticker on the fifth screw. If you can not find the fifth screw, check if there are any BLACK (yes, black) stickers on top of them. Also, which 'designer' made the first design choice for plastic clips? I WILL FIND YOU. AND KILL YOU. *!&*^#% stupidest way to affirm or secure something!

It must be done very carefully: I'd broken both white pieces. Hope has no consequences ...

You also can start from the interior (white pieces all around batterie place)

  • Run the opening pick and pry along the top seam.

  • To avoid bending or damaging the opening picks, do not pry near to the power switch, USB port, or headphone jack.

  • The speakerphone speaker is held to the midframe with some mild adhesive.

  • Use the tip of a spudger to pry the speaker off of the midframe.

The whole "frame " around the speaker can and should be removed prior to removing the speaker! Especially if you change the midframe against a new one you have to transfer this frame from the old one (at least I didn't receive a new frame with my spare midframe).
