    WE need a picture of all the part that need to be removed here… if the rear cameras (the square silver shapes) need to be removed before the motherboard, direction as to that is needed.

    liznewkirk - Contestar

    Motherboard does not need to come out yet

    Notice the screw furthest left in picture. There is a connection to the front-facing cameras that need to be gently popped up to remove the antenna.

  6. Release all connectors on the motherboard with a spudger Undo 3 Phillips #PH00 screws on the mother board then we can take out the mother board.
    • Release all connectors on the motherboard with a spudger

    • Undo 3 Phillips #PH00 screws on the mother board then we can take out the mother board.

    I feel like the last ribbon cable towards the top of the board needs to be addressed here. It's the cable right under the IR sensor for facial recognition in step five. It completely hid itself from my view and I feel like this can happen to someone else. It would be awful to destroy that cable or anything else.

    Felix Robinson - Contestar

    I can’t get the motherboard off because of that hidden flat cable at the top of the phone! I see no way to disengage it. Am I screwed?

    liznewkirk - Contestar

    So, yeah. This step in particular is missing about three more steps, without which you are in danger of tearing the IR sensor. So here’s the missing info. After releasing the connectors from the board:

    * remove the two Phillips screws, under the top lip of the phone chassis, holding the front camera assy in place.

    * Pull the camera assy forward just enough to loosen the IR cable that lays across the board. No need to un-stick the ribbon cables from the chassis.

    * use a spudger to disconnect the antenna cable from the board, directly under the IR cable.

    * gently remove the laminate board while carefully pushing the ribbon connectors out of the way with a spudger.

What About the backside ? I heard that when the backside is shattered, it’s almost impossible to repair, because of the glue that holds the backside and parts together ?

Arnoud - Contestar

Hi avdk, we don’t tear down the back glass but we will pay attention to this question. If there is a definite answer, I will reply to you .Thank you.

Mandy -

The back glass is heavily glued down, and sandwiched between the metal chassis and the rear camera cover (which are welded together). So far as we can tell, there is no practical way to replace the back glass. If it shatters, you’ll have to either live with it, or remove every component and replace the entire enclosure. If you take it to Apple, they will charge you for an out-of-warranty repair (roughly half the original retail price of the phone) and simply replace the entire phone. Check the teardown for some images of the back glass coming off.

Jeff Suovanen -

You can replace the back glass cover of the iPhone X. We do it at work. It takes like 2 hours of heating though but its changeable.

Cristell -

Now there is a machine for remove the iPhone 8/8P/X back glass. Also there are many videos on YouTube about how to remove the back glass easily.

Where can I find your work surface? It looked really organized and had spots for your screwdrivers?

Mike Turrell - Contestar

Hi Mike, you can get it in Etrade Supply. Here is the links you need:https://www.etradesupply.com/catalog/pro...

https://www.etradesupply.com/catalog/pro.... May this can help you!

Mandy -

What are the specs for each screw in the iPhone X?

David Ballantyne - Contestar

is there any adhesive or glue needed during assembly? seems not needed, but why need heating when disassembly the LCD…? who can give answer? many thanks!

kevin - Contestar

It need adhesive during assembly like battery adhesive, the digitize frame adhesive.

Mandy -

Hi, can you tell me where are located the liquid damage indicator? One is on the display assembly, I can not see the second.

thanks

ciaomarco - Contestar

Its located on the Mother Board inside the Phone.

Cristell -

Thank you. I love the resources that you guys put together and the detailed instructions.

While the E-Trade Supply video is fantastic, anybody tinkering with the phone may also want to have a look at the video on JerryRigEverything (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c97ILI7T...) to reinforce their understanding of the tear-down process.

Noam Xia - Contestar

Thank you for this. This is my first time to DIY with my iPhone. I wasn’t able to figure things out without the second video. One issue is that the tools recommended for this repair are incomplete. I ordered a toolkit that met the requirements - but it did not include the tool that has suction cups on both ends to open it easily. That wasn’t on the list. It was only in their video.

ja.hinton -

Not a complete guide to follow. Seeing other teardowns, I notice steps are out of logical order and / or missing. The descriptions lack clarity and left retracing my steps to remove parts not previously mentioned. Then there was not caution of the tweezers possibly poking the battery or by removing the volume flex cable from the wireless charging coil requires re-micro-soldering or replacing the charging coil + flex cable.

Brian Crink - Contestar

What can I do if the iPhone X no longer recognizes the SIM card?
