    I would think this would be rather difficult. I have never done this myself,but I imagine it would not be fun. Also I have not seen a video for this. Sorry for the lack of help

    Here is a SW-Box video that should give you a nice idea of an iP4 midframe replacement.

    its more time consuming than anything. just layout the screws and pay attention. everything is glued down so if not careful its easy to rip a flex cable.

    For me, the best thing is to goto techrestore and download the PDF screw removal (take apart)chart top right corner of the home page. When you get to the really fun stuff, have a second copy ready, and S L O W is your keyword. Some of thoes tapes are fragile and the thin wires inside of them CAN break. If you are awesome (not just good) with a soldering iron, you CAN fix the tiny stuff. just so you know.

    805 93003, great flick and kudos to the guy who did it!
