    Could have saved yourself a LOT of time and just went to iFixIt's website who has the most in-depth tear down guides out there.

    You are missing the point. This was to help people on this site. This has nothing to do with ifixit. They have their guide which is great. This guide is for this site.

    Pictures are good but you can understand a vid much better. Im not hating on Cowboy here at all. He's done an awesome job.
    We're just trying to help out THIS community of people here.

    Hey Bro!
    First, nice take down. If i may inject a few pointers, and explain why, i would like to help too!

    First and foremost goto Techrestore.com and download the screw organizer PDF. This gives you a flat surface AND a small dedicated area for setting each screw, and the order they can come out. i have fixed about 300 iphone 4's and the first few times is sort of scary.

    If you do NOT have a pentalobe screwdriver, do what i did at the beginning, and take a flat tip screw driver, and file it down to a blunt point. I opened about 20 phones with this until my pentalobe screwdriver arrived.

    On your instructions, you remove the camera a little early for my taste.
    understand, this is just my way.
    After you open up the ribbon container clip, remove the ribbon clips from the right to left except the last 2 in reverse order. THEN the small tab on the camera is exposed, facilitating easy removal.
    When replacing the screws, PLEASE do NOT tighten them too much. There are parts that are sensitive, and WILL BREAK if too tight.

    Thank you for taking all the pictures and posting them here. This is NOT an operation for the faint of heart!

    I hope this helps a little.

    Here is a link to a very useful repair guide vid for the iPhone4. They make a lot of videos and I have found them very helpful in the past. If you ever decide to make a video version of your repair guides I think you could learn a thing or two from these. iPhone 4 Teardown & Screen Replacement Video Directions by DirectFix.com - YouTube

    This is a great guide. I still have the original screws instead of the new pentalobe. This is great just in case I would have to replace the glass back.
