This was super simple. My camera was not focusing after a previous company replaced it due lớn a faulty flash. I decided to take things into my own pun intended.

The instructions are super simple và easy to follow. Be aware of the loose video under the connector - mine flew out - và I was worried I wouldn"t figure out how lớn get it back in.

I also had lớn use a #0 screwdriver...#00 was too large.

I couldn"t get the battery, I was just super careful that the phone was off, & remained off during the repair.

Out with the defective with the functioning camera...replaced a couple of screws & the battery connector. Tested the camera prior to replacing everything.

Thank you!

You ROCK!!!

Hi guys. I just did it ! I would not describe it as super easy, but thanks khổng lồ the screw template provided file, even the now famous pressure tương tác can not be lost ;-)

I just wanted to comment, not only to praise (and myself), but also lớn mention two side effects I had to lớn overcome:

-First, when finished, the power nguồn button did not work (I had lớn plug the Dock Connector to lớn start the phone). As I the power button is not so far from the rear camera, I figured out something went wrong in the reassembly. Since I had just done it once, I thought I could do it a second time, so I removed the newly assembled camera and reassembled it with extra caution. At the end, the power button worked as expected.

-Second: each time I restarted the phone after reassembly (twice, then), the SIM card would not unlock after the pin sạc code was entered. I had khổng lồ remove and reinsert the SIM thẻ for the pin sạc code khổng lồ finally unlock it.
