    Taking apart the little pieces in your smartphone can be a big pain. The iFlex is tough but thin with a blade thickness of just 0.15 mm, so it fits into even the smallest spaces, like the gap between the display and frame or under the logic board. The iFlex is made of stainless steel and designed for a good grip, making this convenient tool the perfect assistant for every smartphone repair.

    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.
