iPhone 4 Display Assembly
To keep track of screws, draw a quick outline of the display cable bracket/cover, with five dots where screws should be. Drop the screws on the corresponding dot. Helps if you use magnet pad.
be sure battery is disconnected before reassembling the display —in case you reconnected it to position battery
an old iPhone box and a rubber band lightly around the display works great to hold it at 90
Gently: this piece is attached to the plastic cabling, not the surface of the phone
Do you know whether the adhesive contributes to waterproofing, or just for stability/adhesion?
Yes to this. Listen for that satisfying click…
6 cables to keep above the board when re-inserting: two on top left, one top right, three at the bottom.
good tip, to look at it sideways to confirm seating of connectors.
Please add that suggestion to clean the gasket into the instructions… I closed the phone before I saw that comment. Good comment!
Thanks for the guide. Had to switch over here from the screen assembly guide, as it did not include home button, and vice versa. But done, success, happy.
