    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.

2 steps
  1. Remove the back cover

    The first step is to loosen the heavily glued backcover. To loosen the back cover, the edge of the unit should be heated with hot air. A temperature of about 60 to 80 degrees is recommended. It should still be possible to touch the device with bare fingers without it being too hot.

    1. When the adhesive is heated, place a suction cup at the bottom of the back cover. Slowly pull on the suction cup while pushing your opening tool such as the iFlex or iPlastix into the gap that is opening between the backcover and the frame.
    2. You can also use an iSclack to help lift the back cover a little. The iSclack has suction cups on two sides to pull the display and back cover evenly.

    The iFlex is made of thin yet stable metal and is therefore easier to insert into the narrow gap. However, it is also easier to scratch the back glass or the frame of the device with this tool.The iPlastix is made of plastic, slightly more flexible than the iFlex and therefore a little more difficult to insert into the gap. The iFlex can be used initially to get into the gap at first. After that, you can continue working with the plastic tool.

    1. Once the tool is inserted, slide it along the edge of the frame. Then gradually place a flat plectrum into the already detached part. This will prevent the glue from rejoining at these points.
    At the left edge of the back cover you should be careful not to insert your tool too far into the device. There is a flex cable running along, which could otherwise be easily damaged. In the upper part of the back cover you should be careful not to scratch along the camera module. The backcover is very heavily glued in this area.

    The back cover is made of glass and can therefore break easily. Take enough time for this step and work carefully. Also warm up the frame from time to time. It can take 30 minutes to loosen such a strongly glued backcover.

    If your new back cover has no adhesive surfaces, you will need to use an adhesive frame.

    1. Take the adhesive frame and check the correct alignment. You can orient yourself on different recesses and screw holes.
    2. Pull off the first white protective film and place the adhesive on the frame so that it sits correctly and does not protrude anywhere.
    3. Then remove the green protective foil. If the glue comes off the frame in some places, press it back into position with a spudger.

    If there are already new adhesive surfaces on your spare part, remove all protective foils.

    1. Then put on the back cover and press it down.
    1. You can heat the edge of the device again with the heat gun and weigh it down with a few books to make the adhesive bond even better.
