    • You can remove the outer cover on the back of the phone by using a plastic opening tool. After removal the inner back cover will be exposed as shown.

    • This part is moderately difficult, especially if you've never taken the outer back cover off before this point.

    • It may take you several tries, but please be patient. The cover is surprisingly flexible, but not enough to withstand a lot of pressure.

    • Using a T5 Torx screwdriver head, take out the 14 screws (3.5 mm diameter and 5 mm long) that hold the back plate in place.

    • Make sure to keep all of the screws together, as they are very easily lost.

    • The magnetic project mat or a container is a great way to keep all the little metal screws as well as other small metal pieces from being lost.

    Die Schrauben sind Torx T4!

    To confirm Armin’s comment - yes, the screws are T4 not T5.

    • Use the plastic opening tool to take out the inner back cover after all the screws have been removed.

    • This will expose the motherboard and the attached battery.

    • Take note that once the inner back cover is removed the volume and power buttons on the side can easily fall out or be removed.

    It’s a good idea to make a note now of which way the buttons go back!

    • When you remove the back inner cover, the battery will be exposed on the motherboard. The label is upside down, so do not be alarmed.

    • It is attached by adhesive and connected to the motherboard by an electrical ribbon. So a plastic pry tool will be needed for this task.

    • The battery is attached to the motherboard via an orange ribbon and a plug.

    • Use a flat pry tool to unplug the ribbon from the motherboard. Place the tool underneath the right edge and push up. The plug should come free with minimal resistance.

    • The right edge of the battery will give you the most leverage when removing the battery from the motherboard.

    • Use the pry tool to lift the edge of the battery. Remember: the battery is attached using adhesive.

    • You will meet a lot of resistance in this step. If the battery seems like it is pulling too much at the motherboard, try moving the tool along the edges to work the battery free.

    • Try not to rush. It is important that you don't ruin anything in the process of removing the battery. The battery will come free, it will just take some patience and finding the right spot to lift the battery free of the motherboard.

    • Once the battery is removed, you will be able to replace it by fitting the new battery underneath back camera (the raised silver box on the motherboard) and plugging the ribbon in.

    • When putting the new battery in, make sure the blue cover (shown in the top left orange circle) is in place. It is a protector for delicate circuitry, so it is important that the cover is in its place when the battery is put in.

    Great and precise guide!

    thanks, this was a very good guide and helped me give a new lease of life to an otherwise good phone. My 10yo daughter, who disconnected and reconnected the battery and did most of the screws, says thanks too.

    The instructions were good. Didn’t take long to do, once I had the right tools (I bought a Torx T5 driver, as the tool included with the aftermarket battery was the wrong size; the seller credited the cost of it back to my purchase). The connector was the *only* other challenge: getting it properly lined up & seated.

    Oh, I didn’t have a spudger handy. I used a plastic knife, worked fine. The adhesive was double-stick tape.

    Phone is charging & rebooting right now. Total cost, $13.52, including tool, tax & shipping.

    • The front camera is located at the top edge of the device near the back camera. We highlighted will red circle for easy recognition.

    • It is covered by a small piece of orange tape.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to lift the piece of tape as seen in picture. This will expose the clamp that hold the ribbon connection in place.

    • Underneath the tape is a small plug that connects the front camera to the motherboard.

    • Use the tool to gently flip open the cover of the plug.

    • The ribbon will then slide out of the slot.

    • Using the tool, lift the camera out of its socket. It should come free with little to no hastle.

    • The camera can then be taken out.

    • This should be your final product.
