    • You may need to reheat and reapply the iOpener several times to get the phone warm enough. Follow the iOpener instructions to avoid overheating.

    • A hair dryer, heat gun, or hot plate may also be used, but be careful not to overheat the phone—the OLED display and internal battery are both susceptible to heat damage.

  • To reinstall the back cover:

    • First use tweezers to peel away any remaining adhesive from both the back cover and the phone's chassis.

    • Then, clean the adhesion areas with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (at least 90%) and a lint-free cloth. Swipe in one direction only, not back and forth. This will help prep the surface for the new adhesive.

    • Be sure to turn on your phone and test your repair before installing new adhesive and resealing the phone.

    • Replacement adhesive comes in a pre-cut sheet to match the exact contours of the back cover. The sheet is asymmetrical, so make sure the screw holes in the adhesive sheet line up with the screws on the frame before applying the adhesive.

      • If the adhesive sheet is not available, you can use a high-bond double-sided tape, such as Tesa 61395.

    • After installing the rear cover, apply strong, steady pressure to your phone for several minutes to help the adhesive form a good bond, such as by placing it under a stack of heavy books.

  • If desired, you may reinstall the back cover without replacing the adhesive. Remove any large chunks of adhesive that might prevent the back cover from sitting down flush. After installation, heat the back cover and apply pressure to secure it. It won't be waterproof, but the glue is usually more than strong enough to hold.
