Done! Nice detailed instructions.
One thing… When I was done, the iPhone wouldn’t turn on. I suppose that the battery is shipped completely flat.
When I plugged it in, it kept flashing the Apple boot screen (black screen with white apple). It would not “force boot” like the instructions said. I assumed I had messed up putting the phone back together. I took it back apart and put it back together, and everything seems ok. (After you’ve done it once, taking it apart and putting it back together again gets easier!)
Turns out, since the new battery is completely flat, you need to leave it plugged in for at least fifteen minutes before it will do anything.
Now, I’m in the middle of conditioning the battery. I charged it to 100% plus a few more hours plugged in. Now I’m using it until it shuts down. The new battery is already lasting MUCH longer than the old one! All seems well now. Once the battery dies, I’ll charge it to 100% again, and it should be good to go after that!
I also love the tools that came in the kit!
