Any instructions for replacing the front speaker? I think I clogged it with glue when replacing the front glass.

Thanks!

Great set of instructions! Pictures are very accurate and helpful! When it only take 5-10 mins to do something you have never tried before, you know the instructions were excellent! Thanks

Excellent instructions. At step 12, the bracket is fragile and can easily ping off across the room so be careful. Thanks.

My front camera is a bright white also, even on video recording but you can still hear sound.
