Skip Intro: 0:27
Remove Battery 3:39 (BV-5JW 1450mAh 3.8v 5.5Wh) Same as N9
Hot Air Needed 5:40
Headphone Socket 9:09
Small Magnet 11:29
Front Microphone 13:20
Earpiece Rubber Gasket 13:56
Insert Battery 15:15
Screen on 17:33
If the accelerometer is not working try replacing the proximity sensor.
The USB door is the same as the N9 and does 'pull off' but unless you have a replacement it will be floppy when you put it back on.
If you TURN IT ON before the screen is connected you will need to reset the phone by disconnecting the battery for a few seconds.
I used a fan heater for the hot air to soften the glue.
