Take your iPhone apart with a suction cup!

Interesting finding over at hackint0sh… One smart user found a way to take his iPhone 3G apart, using a suction cup.

Here is how it works:

  1. Remove the two screws on either side of the charging port
  2. Apply a suction cup, to the glass screen. Try to mount it right below the home button.
  3. Pull the suction cup toward you and the screen should come out (bottom first)
  4. You will see 3 cables running from the top right corner of the screen to the main board of the phone. 3 cables are numbered 1, 2, and 3. Remove the cables in that order.
  5. Once the three cables are detached, the entire LCD unit is now separate from the main board.

This can be a handy trick, should you want to fix light leak for example, as this user did. No need to say that your iPhone warranty will be voided in a heartbeat…
