    • Insert the SIM card eject tool into the hole in the side of the SIM card tray and push to eject the tray.

    • Remove the SIM card tray.

    • If the SIM card does not fall free from the tray on its own, simply remove it with your fingers.

    • In the following steps you will be releasing the clips holding the phone's cases together. However, the back case is also secured with an adhesive pad. After separating the clips you will use an iOpener to allow the case to fully open. Do not attempt to fully open the phone before loosening the adhesive.

    • Insert a plastic opening tool into the seam between the front and rear covers near the SIM card slot.

    • Slide the plastic opening tool along the seam toward the upper corner.

  3. Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 3, imagem 1 %32 Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 3, imagem 2 %32
    • Carefully slide the plastic opening tool around the corner, freeing it from clips.

    • Pry around the top right corner of the phone between the two covers.

  5. Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 5, imagem 1 %32 Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 5, imagem 2 %32 Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 5, imagem 3 %32
    • Run the opening tool along the seam around all four sides, separating the remaining clips holding the cover on.

    • The plastic on the front cover is thinner near the buttons, and the buttons may move around. Go slowly to avoid damaging the buttons or the front cover.

    • Do not push the opening tool deep into phone, or you may damage internal components.

  6. Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 6, imagem 1 %32
    • Heat an iOpener and lay it over the phone for approximately 90 seconds to loosen the adhesive securing the back cover.

    • Starting from the SIM slot side, carefully peel the back cover off of the phone.

    • The back cover is very flexible, but you don't want to damage any internal components by being too hasty.

    • There is a chance that the NFC coil may remain stubbornly adhered to the back cover. If that's the case, stop peeling the cover and reapply a heated iOpener to the back cover.

    • Do not separate the back cover entirely; it is still connected to the phone by the camera flash cable.

    • The flash cable is attached on the power/volume button side of the phone.

  8. Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 8, imagem 1 %32
    • Gently set the back cover down in a way that exposes the camera flash cable connector, but does not put strain on it.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to flip up the retaining flap on the flash cable ZIF connector.

    • Be sure to pry only on the flap itself, not on the connector.

    • Pull the flash cable straight out of its socket.

  10. Motorola Moto X Rear Facing Camera Replacement: passo 10, imagem 1 %32

    • The battery is secured to the motherboard with mild adhesive. Peel slowly, and be careful not to bend or puncture the battery.

This took me about an hour or so to do after I got the right tools. I ordered the iOpener "kit" and stupid me thinking that ifixit would directly link you from this page to a kit that works with it, so I didn't read that the kit comes with a T5 torx bit and not a T3. Also no tweezers. Other than that this guide works perfect. The only tricky parts really were getting the battery out; "mild adhesive" my !@#. I used the black tool to slowly pry the battery out. Be patient and the adhesive will give. The other tricky part was getting the motherboard plugged back in. I thought I had it in the first time but apparently didn't. If you get it all back together and all the phone does when you turn it on is do a 1-2sec vibrate every 10 sec or so then check the connection on the motherboard. Great guide for getting your phone DOD ready. Or any job that doesn't allow camera phones on site!

I was successful replacing both my non-functioning camera, a battery getting on the weak side, and a new back cover (went for one of those colorful back covers sold on eBay). The two things that tripped me up were 1) dealing with that sticky gasket between the antenna and the noise-canceling mic (Step 20), and 2) getting the cover glass to stay put on the new back cover. For 2), I ended up fashioning my own adhesive with 2-sided scotch tape.

*ALSO* You really don't need to do Step 35. Leave the motherboard plugged in, and simply remove and re-attach the camera in place.

I went through each step methodically and only had problems removing the top black cover in step #28. The assembly came off with the ear speaker attached to it, nonetheless was able to put it back. Just be wary that it might not be as easy as pictured.

When putting it all back together though I got an unwelcome surprise... somehow instead of getting the phone turning on and loading android, I got the symbol of the battery reading 80% and a large battery outline icon in the middle of the screen against white background with a light blue indicator reflecting visually that 80% charge. Anyone got a similar issue? I couldn't get android to start as it usually would. What gives? (Thanks for any help! :)

First I just want to say thank you for putting together this wonderful guide.

I've replaced the camera and it works but the camera has a problem focusing and all the pictures are blurry. Do you think it's the new camera or a software issue. This is the second camera I got from Phone Parts USA that has done this. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!
