    I purchased a blue plastic opening tool(AKA: Spudge) like the one used in the above Step 1 rear cover pic and found the divot and was able to take off the rear cover as per the “Step 2 “ instructions.

    Looks easy but doesn't work. No one has a plastic opening tool. Using fingernail, you can press SIM card into slot but it does not pop out so you can remove it.

    I agree with the comment above

    I also don't have a plastic tool and my finger nail won't pop the card out.

    I'm seeing midframes available on Ebay for around $10.

    I purchased a 1.5x40mm Phillips screw driver and was able to remove all 9 40mm screws from the midframe as per the Step 6 Midframe instructions.

  6. The midframe is secured to the display assembly by several plastic clips behind the chrome bezel of the midframe. The next few steps will guide you through separating the clips to free the midframe. Starting on the volume button side of the phone, insert your plastic opening tool between the chrome bezel around the display glass and the larger chrome border piece.  Look for the seam between the two.

    • Slide the opening tool along the seam, separating the plastic clips as you go.

    • Be very gentle whilst prying, and pry only enough to separate the plastic clips—there are several thin points in the midframe bezel that may crack if you bend them too much.

    I used same tool as in the photo and i broke the display. I think you should use a very thin plastic tool, such as a credit card but even more thin and flexible.

    I purchased a blue plastic opening tool(AKA: Spudger) and was able to remove the midframe from the display assembly as per the Step 7. I had to hold the cell phone firmly in my left hand while I gently forced the spudger between the chrome bezel and the midframe with my right hand and heard plastics clips separate and saw the midframe start to separate from the display assembly. Don’t be afraid to get that spudger in and just gently go down the side of the phone and you will hear the plastics clips detach and the midframe to separate more and more until you are able to separate them 100%. I started at the volume button side of the phone in Step 7 and ended at the power button side in Step 9.

    This blue Case Opening tool has a less rigid edge that is kinder to trim than the hard black Spudger shown in later steps. I was glad to have the right tool on hand at this step. Use it as a wedge and slide it along the gap.

  7. Continue prying around the corner of the phone. Slide your opening tool along the seam between the midframe and display along the bottom of the device, releasing more of the plastic clips.

  9. Continue sliding the opening tool around the top of the phone, releasing the last of the clips and freeing the midframe from the display assembly. At this point, you may want to run your plastic opening tool along the entire perimeter of the device again, to make sure you've released all of the plastic clips.

    On my phone, there was another clip holding the white midframe to the battery compartment, in the middle of the top edge of the battery compartment, near the battery contacts. If you don't release that before removing the midframe, it is easy to break.

    My Sprint S4 was slightly different then the one pictured above but I just completed this repair in under 10 minutes.. It would have been slightly quicker but fooling around with those little screws can be irritating if you have big hands.

    Michael Willis - Ответить

    Just did this on my S4. Instructions were extremely helpful, but I had to remove a screw (step 10.5?) to remove the upper display assembly bracket. Other than that, flawless! Thanks!

    The 3rd image of the 11th step shows that when the midframe is removed, some parts come along with it (at the bottom part of it). What are these parts? should they be removed too and placed in the new midframe? Are they easy to remove?

    I could not get the screen connector to fit on with the motherboard assembly in place. I had to remove the motherboard assembly, attach the screen connector, and then carefully replace the motherboard assembly, with the screen connector still attached..

    Tom4G - Ответить

    Same as Tom4G above. When trying to connect the screen connector, it would not give me that nice clear snap indicating a positive connection. The phone powered up with no screen. So, I disconnected the other connectors again, lifted the motherboard out and connected the screen connector by pinching it with finger and thumb from both sides of the motherboard, this time getting a nice snap when it engaged.

    The headphone jack is surrounded by rubber. It's kind of squeezed in there. You can pry on it to get it out.

    I had a quick question there's a little white rubber circular gasket piece that the headphone jack covers up

    What's that piece called?

    damian lasher - Ответить

    The small rectangular milky-white silicon gasket appears to be a diffuser for ambient light sensor.  I removed it with a small screwdriver, and replaced it in the same location in my new screen assembly.

    Nicholas Crisp -

    The small rectangular milky-white silicon gasket appears to be a diffuser for an ambient light sensor.  I prised it out of the old assembly and placed it in the new screen assembly.  I also started transferring the components as they were removed from the old screen, so the head-phone jack went straight into the new at this point.  I may regret that later…

    Nicholas Crisp -

    The angle of the picture here makes it appear like the head phone jack needs to be slid out of the top of the phone. This is impossible due to small bits of plastic holding it in at the top. If you're having trouble, the headphone jack is in fact supposed to lift straight up out of the phone.

    sigoshi - Ответить

    Additionally, there might be a small amount of adhesive holding the headphone jack to the board (there was some in my device). Apply a bit of heat to loosen it up, if needed.

    Mikolaj Banasik - Ответить

    it is easy to pop off, if you apply pressure to the right point. Using a plastic pair of tweezers or a pry tool, push at the lower right corner and gradually increase the pressure, if you apply enough pressure it will just pop right off.

I accidentally inserted an electric pin instead of the auxiliary jack into the head phone jack assembly. There was a loud screeching sound and ever since then the head phones do not work. However, I can play music through the phone speaker and also with Bluetooth. I cannot listen to music with my ear buds or head phones or with auxiliary speakers. I have replaced the jack assembly with a new one and yet it is the same. What more can I do to rectify this?

Did you ever get help on this? Having the same problem.

Jace Blackburn -

Me too have same problem....did u got it fixed or not?...if yes how u did it...?

Hi all,

I own a Galaxy s4 SGH-I337, No sound comes out of the right earbud with wire.

Bluetooth works fine in stereo.

I suspect the haedphone Jack plug to be broken, i order a new one on ebay now for 5$, i'll let you know when i've tried this repair.

Ewouik - Ответить

I own a Galaxy S4 SGH-I337 whose headphone jack does not work for the right ear.

However bluetooth works well in stereo, thus i suspect the jack module.

I am buying a new jack on ebay for 5 $ and will let you know when i receive it and install it.

... to be continued...

Ewouik - Ответить

Thanks to Sam Lionheart for this guide. It was clear and easy to follow. It gave me the instructions I needed to solve my problem - headphones etc. were no longer making good connections with my Galaxy S-4 jack - and for about $7 I was able to completely fix the issue.
