Next you will need to remove the back cover of the device using a safe open pry tool to release the clips holding it in place. After the back cover has been removed you can peel off the black film covering the motherboard. Be careful not to tear it while removing. Now that the motherboard has been exposed you will need to take your Small Phillips screwdriver and remove 13 screws as shown labeled in the figure below. You will also need to remove 2 Torx T5 screws at the bottom of the device. See figure below for screw locations. After all the screws have been removed you will have to release the following connections: 5 Antenna Cables 4 Jawbone Connectors 2 Pop Connectors Battery Connector See figure below to reference screw and flex cable locations Next you will need to remove the motherboard and upper circuit board. To do this you will need to use you pry tool to gently lift up the motherboard and slide it out of the housing. Next you will need to to release the front camera and power button flex from the housing. *Note: The power button flex cable is held down with adhesive, be careful not to rip or tear the flex ribbon.* See figure below for reference Now that you have completed the steps above you can begin removing the upper circuit board using your plastic pry tool to gently lift up the board enabling you to remove it from the device. After doing so you are now able to remove the speaker assembly located at the bottom of the device by using your pry tool to gently lift it out of the housing. The battery is held down with strong adhesive, you will need to be cautious when using your pry tool(s) as you do not want to bend the battery. Work your way evenly around the battery prying up on all sides to work the adhesive loose to enable you to remove it. Using a second pry tool for even leverage is recommended in some cases. Finally you will need to peel off the volume buttons located on the side of the housing being careful not to rip the cable through the housing. See figure below for reference Now that all steps above have been completed you can start removing your Droid DNA's LCD and touch screen digitizer assembly. To do this you will need a heat gun or a blow dryer to apply heat to the screen assembly that will loosen up the adhesive holding it in place. Take your heat source on a medium setting and evenly apply heat to the outer edges of the front of the screen assembly as well as the back of the housing where the LCD screen is adhered to with a little adhesive as well. You'll want to do this in 30-45 second intervals being careful not to over heat the device and damaging the working components you may need to re-use such as the LCD or its flex cables. After a sufficient amount of heat has been applied take your plastic pry tool and slide it along the outer edges of the screen and housing to separate them from each other. Take your time and work around all edges on the assembly until you have released the adhesive enough to remove the screen assembly entirely from the devices inner housing. Note: If you are only replacing either the Touch screen digitizer or LCD by itself you will need to use extra caution not to damage the other screen you will be reusing.
