I.The adhesive securing the top of the phone is only a narrow strip above the earpiece speaker. Slide the pick along the top of the speaker to avoid damaging internal components.
Slide the opening pick across the top of the phone, being very careful not to insert the pick too deeply.
II. If the front panel is not easily freed, the adhesive on the soft button cable may need to be separated.
These cables are thin and easily damaged, therefore be certain you are only peeling them off the display assembly and not lacerating them.
Insert an opening pick under the soft button icons on the display and pry the button cables down off the inside of the front panel.
III. Slightly lift, but do not remove, the home button end of display assembly.
Do not remove the front panel entirely. It is still attached by a connector.
