    • Adhesive Strips (For Touch Screen Replacements)

    HTC Evo 3D take apart repair guide:

    • Separate the rear housing cover from the face of the phone with fingers (just like you'd to exchange battery). Then take away the battery and set aside.
    • Using T5 screwdriver, take away the two center edge screws just above in which the battery was placed.
    • Then, you'll use the T3 screwdriver to get rid of the 4 corner screws close to the phone. Set all screws aside.
    • While using pry tool, slide it in to the seam and separate the face area from the phone in the back housing as proven in figure 1.
    Figure 1​
    • While using pry tool and nippers, carefully lift and separate all clips and cables which are holding the motherboard in position. These will frequently appear as flat bits of metal, but they are sometimes a real ribbon, like the camera ribbon cable.
    • Take away the yellow tape which will reveal two additional cables which are hidden in to the motherboard. By using a nippers, you are able to slide these out without harmful them.
    • The final connective piece appears like an L-formed piece of metal, as proven in figure 2. Separate this piece carefully.

    • Carefully separate the motherboard, because it it's still connected underneath by a number of cables. A couple of these cables are situated together, and could be removed after lifting the cover tape to show the connection place, as proven in figure 3.

    • After disconnecting both of these cables, you are able to disconnect the more compact one alternatively finish very much the same. You can now securely take away the motherboard and set aside.
    • Remove four screws which are situated close to the phone with the use of your T5 screwdriver, and lift the cable.
    • The underside blue flex cable can be taken off by gradually separating all stretching cables linked to it. Shown in figure 4.

    • If you're changing the touchscreen digitizer or LCD screen exclusively, you will need to continue within the take-apart process with your heat gun or hair dryer to warm up the phone

    Hey, I took apart my Evo 3d a couple of weeks ago to fix a simple wifi issue(Wifi won't turn on) and put it back together. Wifi worked for a week or so before I had the same issue again.

    The problem is. after trying to take it apart again, I noticed that the screw driver isn't fitting in anymore(It doesn't unscrew(Problem is from the screws)). Is there any other way to take it apart? other than using a screwdriver?

    I know this has little to do with the Evo 3D but I really need help and Google isn't helping

    What about ESD protection? Anyone taking apart their EVO because they are merely curious or trying to repair their device without ESD protection is looking for trouble.

    Please update your information to reflect the need for ESD protection. If you do not know what ESD is, ask Mr. Google. I think Radio shack sells cheap grounding straps.

    Understand, once you zap a part, it cannot be fixed. And you are not out of the clear if your reassembled device seems to work. It might eventually fail because ESD weakened the fine wires inside the IC so they no longer handle the power they were designed to handle.

    At some point your phone dies.

    ESD is a killer to be sure.

    Having hand built, taken apart and/or reassembled thousands of Palm Pilots, perhaps I am qualified to help you?

    If the screw driver does not fit, look at the screws. They are not designed to be replaced over and over again. If you use a screwdriver that is not designed for the screw head size, you can damage the screw.

    You also run the risk of having case damage from removing the screws and perhaps tightening them too much. The phone is not designed for user repair, so the problems you are seeing never occur in the factory. they are quickly built and passed down the line. Damaged parts are replaced with proper parts.

    Sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties. Unfortunately, this repair does require you to unscrew the screws. We have replacement screwdrivers available on our site, but it sounds like the actual screws have been stripped. Best of luck!
