Tip & How-To about Apple iPhone 3G
Got this great instructions from - www.rapidrepair.com.
Small Phillips Screw Driver
Small Flathead or exacto razor
Safe Open Tool
Remove the sim tray, use the included sim card removal tool (or a paper clip if you've lost the tool.)
Holding your device on end you will notice two small screws on either side of the dock. These screws must be removed in order to open the case.
Insert a small thin tool between the chrome ring and front panel glass directly above one of the screw holes. You will need to exert a small amount of pressure to separate the display from the back panel.
Lift the panel up from the dock end being careful not to tear or break any ribbons connected near the other end.
Unplug ribbons 1 and 2 by lifting them from the main board. Under ribbon 2 you will need to find and unclip ribbon 3, then carefully remove the display assembly.
Remove the seven screws circled in red. Note: One screw is located under the DO NOT REMOVE sticker.
Unplug ribbon 4.
Lift the mother board out taking note of the camera which is still connected to the underside of the board. You will need to unplug the ribbon circled in red.
Place the mother board to the side.
Use the attached tab to pull up on the battery, there is a mild adhesive on the back side, so it will take a bit of force.
Remove the screw circled in red.
Carefully remove the camera.
Remove the nine screws circled in red.
Remove the headphone jack and attached flex cable.
Remove the speaker assembly which also contains the dock connector, antennae and home button as well.
Remove the 2 screws circled in red.
Place the ******** assembly to the side.
Remove the 2 screws circled in red. You will find 3 screws on the opposite side which must be removed as well.
Lift the LCD free from the front panel glass.
