Do you guys have any experience disassembling a Breakout and replacing the top glass?
Thanks in advance!
This phone is EXTREMELY easy to disassemble. Take battery, sim card, micro sd card out. Take the 6 screws out from beneath the battery cover. Then push a fingernail between the glossy and dull plastic and work your way around to get the clips off. Carefully undo the ribbons for the various pieces. When you have the mainboard off the phone chassis, you'll see the back of the screen, a grey plastic slab. There is a ribbon with a square box that is glued to the back of this near the top, but you can work use your fingernail to pry it off and slip it through the hole in the top. Replace what you need, assembly is reverse.
