  1. To remove the battery, the adhesive is designed to be pulled out using the 2 black tabs on the right hand side. It works the same way as a 3M wall hook adhesive strip.Take the motherboard out, and pull each tab slowly to remove the adhesive strip. I tried to leave the motherboard in the frame, but the adhesive broke when I was pulling it, probably because I was pulling it at an angle.

  2. After replaced the new screen, the screen phone is totally black. The phone turn on, but has no image. I tried put the oldest screen to test and the same thing happened. Anyone can help me?

  3. My GPS stopped working after I dropped the phone. I'd like to fix it if possible but I could not find any information where the GPS module or the GPS antenna is located. Can you help me on this one ?

  4. How do you replace the flex cable stuck on the battery? I need to replace the battery and the replacement battery doesn't come with the square of flex cable you see stuck on the back of the battery?

  5. Wit Rigs: Together with a lot of others, my magnetic charging port fell out (using a Sony Dk48 charger) and Sony refuse to cover it by warranty. Can you please make a guide how to reattach it or replace it, cant find anyone that made one!

  6. How can I replace the mainframe? Mine is a white Z3 Xompact but i dropped it and got the edge broken, and I like the cellphone so much I want to change it… Any idead how could I get a new mainframe of white color?… Thank you, such a great video
