    I just bought a second-hand Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 and am trying to take it apart to clean all the dust out inside.

    I am following this guide on iFixit
    https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Samsung+Galaxy+S+II+Teardown/5861

    But I'm stuck at the stage where I have to pry off the back panel because when I do, I bend a piece of the circuit board beneath the audio jack that is stuck to it.

    I checked the guide and Youtube tutorials I watched and its never covered in any of them so it must be something wrong with my phone.

    Here is a link to a photo I took of the problem I'm having.

    Please help. Thank you.

    Gently work your way from the other side. You may have to use a heat gun or hairdryer in order loosen the adhesive. Overheating you S2 will cause damage.

    Good luck and welcome to Android Forums @Upriver :)
