    Opening your smartphone can be a very delicate operation, especially if the glue is very persistent. The blade of the flexible but sturdy iFlex measures just 0.15 mm, so it fits in even the smallest gaps, such as between the screen and the frame. The practical iFlex is made of stainless steel and sits comfortably in the hand. This makes it the perfect assistant for every smartphone repair.

Getting started with the repair of your G6

14 steps
  1. Switch off the device

    G6 - Switch off the device 01
    G6 - Switch off the device 02
    G6 - Switch off the device 03
    1. Turn off your device by holding down the power button on the back until the “Power off” option appears.
    2. Tap to confirm and wait until the screen goes black.
  2. Remove back cover

    G6 - Remove back cover 01
    G6 - Remove back cover 02
    G6 - Remove back cover 03
    G6 - Remove back cover 04
    G6 - Remove back cover 05
    G6 - Remove back cover 06
    G6 - Remove back cover 07

    To loosen the back cover, use a heat gun or an ordinary hair dryer. Warm glue is easier to loosen, allowing you to remove the back cover.

    The easiest way to loosen the back cover is to use a flat and flexible tool such as the iFlex.

    We also recommend inserting flat picks to prevent the glue from sticking again.

    1. Heat the entire rear glass. It's glued all around the edges and around the home button and over the USB port.
    2. Insert the iFlex between the rear glass and the frame, but not more than 5 mm.

    Be extra careful, the back cover can break very easily. Don't pry with the tool, but only slide it around the edges. If necessary, apply the heat several times and try again. Removing the back cover might take a while. Take a little more time and work carefully to make sure you don't break anything.

    1. Once the rear glass comes off in one place, insert a pick into the gap to keep it open.
    2. Then run the iFlexit around all the edges to gradually loosen the glue.
    3. The rear glass has extra glue around the home button and over the USB port. Here you need to insert the iFlexit a little deeper. But not to far, or you could damage parts on the home button.
    4. Once the rear glass is unglued, you can lift it off. There's not cable attached.
