Also, for safety, the battery connecter should be disconnected in this step rather than waiting until after removing the speaker cover/antenna assembly.
I used nearly boiling water in a storage zip bag on the phone for 10 minutes. I can’t really recommend this method, but thankfully the bag did not leak - an iOpener is probably a much better way to go. Regardless, the bag covered the entire back of the phone, and the phone was too hot to hold, but I still could not get the glass to budge with the suction cup after struggling with it for about an hour and multiple reheats. I ended up epoxying a 2”x2” square of PVC board to the bottom of the cover and built a relatively complex fixture that pulled on the PVC with the turn of a screw while it held down the frame by the edges. After heating the edges up again It did lift the glass enough to get a pick underneath it, but it cracked the glass and it was a pain to slide a pick around the edge while the glass was cracking all the way around. Once I finally got all the glass off, I spent the next 30 minutes (which is what this entire process is supposed to take… what a joke!) cleaning the adhesive off the phone.
This is not quite as easy as the simple statement “Remove the NFC coil assembly” would lead you to believe. The top and left side of the plastic bracket attached to the coil have tabs inserted into the frame of the phone and you can’t just pick the coil assembly up. It takes a bit of force, and I used a spudger to gently pry along the top from right to left to pop the tabs free, and then the tabs on the left came out more easily. Do not just pull on the coil and bend it up.
The NFC/wireless charging coil is adhered to the motherboard bracket, and in my case they both came off together.
There is adhesive on the camera so it’s not quite as easy as “pop the camera out gently” makes it sound. It is much weaker than the adhesive on the back cover so no heat is needed, but be aware that there is some resistance.
There is another connector on the back side of the motherboard at the very bottom left that you must pry apart with a spudger before removing the mother board.
