Replacement of rear case and rear camera on iPhone5
15 Minuten - 1 Stunde
The rear camera got damaged after an accident where the iPhone hit the floor a little bit to hard. Even the rear case got damaged. And then the battery only worked for a hour, I desided it was time to do something.
Thanks to Ifixit, I got both the "how-to" and the replacement parts. It took a long time - almost 5 hours! The repair did go well, even the tiny parts, but I had to redo something - some connectors who got forgotten (difficult to use the phone when You forgot to connect the cellular data antenna...). But I'm satisfied - the phone is saved from the trashcan - it works as it is brand new!
The "how-to" could be a little more informative on how to assemble the iPhone - I got some problems because some of the connectors were hiding under the "main unit". But overall: Can I, can You!
