proper way to disassemble iphone
I'd like to collect in this thread information regarding proper ways to disassemble the iPhone. So far everyone waves their hands and say "just consult the millions of websites", but from my experience, millions == 3 once you exclude "who cares how we land the plane".
PDAparts takeapart makes it seem easy; just waves the magic opener tool past the black part and it magically comes off. Doubtful.
Thinksecret is more candid about prying the hell out of it to get it off, from one side to the other. They don't seem to provide much insight either regarding how to safely get it off.
ifixit seems to indicate where the catches are, sort-of, and advocates jamming a spudger into the dock connector. There may be enough info here to completely/correctly deduce how to do this, but it seems sketchy/imcomplete.
Have I missed anything? Everyone else on the net seems to be "Duhhh, I hit it with the hammer and here's the insides"..
