  • Droid 2 speaker is held in a place by the pressure of both halves of phone’s case which is why it can be simply be taken off once the back has been detached.
  • Pull out both the antenna and data ribbon cables using safe pry tool since both are too tiny to disconnect from the motherboard using by hand.
  • After disconnecting the keypad’s data cable on the flip side of the board, use a T5 Torx Screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the motherboard in place.

  • Pull out the camera if you want to replace it as it is a separate circuit.
