    • While heating the rear panel, use a Jimmy to test if the adhesive is soft enough to allow the panel to separate from the device.

    • Carefully detach the rear panel, using opening picks to hold the panel apart from the device.

    • Once most of the edges are separated from the device, attach a suction cup to the panel.

  4. Press the suction cup to the rear panel to secure it. With the help of the suction cup, pull up on the panel to completely detach it from the device. Use the suction cup to safely remove the panel from the device. As you work around the panel's edges, the lingering heat may cause the remaining adhesive to reattach the panel to the device.

    • Using a PH000 screwdriver, remove the following seven screws:

    • Four (longer) Phillips 000 screws

    • Three shorter Phillips 000 screws

    • Once all of the screws are removed, proceed to using a plastic spudger to pry the metal cover off.

    • There are two clips near the bottom, right above that battery, so start by prying on the bottom edge of the plate.

  6. Once the metal cover is removed, locate the battery connector wire, which clips into the motherboard. Using a plastic spudger, gently pry on the clip to release it.

  7. On the battery, locate a clear tab. This will be used to pull the battery out. Firmly grasp the clear tab and pull up and away from the phone. Take your time on this, as you do not want to apply to much force and damage the battery.
