はじめに

Follow this guide to replace the daughterboard (otherwise known as the charging assembly or charging port board) for the Google Pixel XL.

The Pixel XL’s unreinforced display panel is fragile and is attached to the frame with strong adhesive, making repairs difficult. There is a considerable chance of breaking the display, especially if it already has micro-fractures. Be sure to apply plenty of heat and be extremely careful during the prying stage.

  1. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the top edge of the display for two minutes. A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage. Take note of the following regions before you begin prying:

    • Take note of the following regions before you begin prying:

    • Thin adhesive lined against the display panel

    • Thick adhesive

    • The OLED display panel, which is very prone to damage

    • The display cable, which can be damaged during prying

  2. Once the edge is warm to the touch, apply a suction cup close to the edge. Lift on the suction cup, and insert an opening pick into the gap. Do not insert the pick more than 13 mm (0.5 inches), or you will damage the display assembly.

    • Do not insert the pick more than 13 mm (0.5 inches), or you will damage the display assembly.

    • If you have trouble creating a gap, reheat the edge and try again.

    • You can also try to use a playing card instead of an opening pick to help make the initial entry.

  3. Slide the opening clip across the top edge to slice through the adhesive. Be sure not to cut deeper than 13 mm (0.5 inches) or you will damage the display. Leave an opening pick in the edge to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    • Carefully guide the pick around the corner.

    • Slide the pick along the bottom edge to slice through the adhesive.

    • Do not slice deeper than 8.5 mm (1/3") or you will damage the display cable.

  6. Once you have sliced around the perimeter of the phone, carefully lift the display assembly up slightly by the right corners.
    • Once you have sliced around the perimeter of the phone, carefully lift the display assembly up slightly by the right corners.

    • Do not attempt to remove the display assembly. It is still attached by a flex cable.

    • Use an opening pick to slice through any remaining adhesive.

  7. Lift the display assembly from the top end and swing it around such that it rests upside down on the frame. Be careful not to strain the flex cable when you swing the assembly around. Be careful not to strain the flex cable when you swing the assembly around.

  9. Use the point of a spudger to pry up and disconnect the display cable from its connector. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

Will this also work for the original Pixel as well, or is there a separate tear-down for it?

Thanks in advance.

There’s no reason to mess with the battery for this repair! Also, the screen breaks more easily than you think, so be super careful. I thought i was being careful and broke the screen.

When reattaching the screen, plug the screen in first, then the battery disconnect. if not, the screen won’t turn on.
