Thank you very much for this tutorial. It saved me from buying a new phone! It was scary once the phone was completely disected to think that it had to somehow go back together, but I just followed the steps in reverse. I used t4 for the larger screws as t5 did not seem to fit, but it worked out great. Thanks again.
