). Basically, you need to locate the small hole next to headphone jack. Use a needle to eject sim tray. And then hold your iphone on end to locate two small screws on either side of the dock. Get a small screwdriver and remove the screws. Now insert a spudger between the chrome ring and front panel glass directly above one of the screw holes. And then gently separate the display from the back panel. Lift the panel up from the dock end being careful not to tear or break any ribbons connected near the other end, and continue to hold the display panel with one hand, and use your other hand and a spurger to disconnect the black ribbon cable labeled "1”. Rotate the display assembly up until it is roughly vertical. This will allow easier access for disconnecting the remaining cables. Use a spudger to disconnect the black ribbon cable labeled "2." Use a spudger to flip up the white plastic tab holding the remaining ribbon cable in place. The white tab will rotate up 90 degrees, releasing the ribbon cable. Slide the black ribbon cable out of its connector, and remove the display assembly from the iPhone. Remove the 8 screws surrounding the motherboard and unplug ribbon “4”. Lift the mother board out. Be careful not to rip the ribbon connecting the camera to the underside of the board. Unplug this connecting ribbon and place the mother board aside. Use a spudger to gently pry up the end of the logic board closest to the dock connector. If the board won't lift up, double check to make sure all the screws securing the logic board have been removed. Slide the logic board towards the dock connector and out of the iPhone. now pull up on the attached tab on the battery to remove. Replace battery and repeat steps in reverse to reassemble!
