If you're experiencing issues with your motherboard, use this guide to replace it. Be careful not to damage any connectors or wires in the process of opening up your phone.

    • Remove the SIM tray.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, carefully separate the back panel from the main body assembly of the phone. Be extra careful around the SIM slot or other weak areas.

    • You may encounter some resistance due to hidden locking clips around the inside edge of the phone. Not to worry; just move in one consistent direction around the phone as opposed to jumping from spot to spot!

    • Top to bottom, left to right, clockwise or counter clockwise, once we make it about half way around the device, the panel is easily removable by hand.

    • It is of utmost importance that you do not attempt to free the battery from the device at this point without proceeding to the following step! This is an integrated battery that can easily be damaged or destroyed if the proper steps are are not taken.

    It doesn't mention you have to remove SIM tray first.

    I used the #0 for the rear panel screws. The #00 is too small and will slip, stripping the screws if you're not extra careful.

    The last three hidden screws are a !&&* of a time consumer to remove. probably you would need only a certain type of tweezers - I got stuck at midway and now I cannot get go have my phone detect the sim card either probably because the six screws are removed. I can now turn the phone back on but with no service or wifi connections are detected. This phone is a disaster!

    Ivdid that too but son in law found I had reinstalled sim card in backwards or upside down.

    EBay. I bought new battery cause old ibe was dead would not charge. Just ordered new cables fit 9.00 something free shipping. Anyway hope this fixes problem cause new battery did not fix problems.

    I was able to open going from the microusb slot and working my way around. The corners are tough, though.

    in my phone the battery was glued with double sided adhesive tape, only on the right side. I pried the left side up first, and carefully removed the battery. to lift the battery I used first used a suction cup(?) followed by a plectrum like tool to lift te battery, and keep it lifted

    A word of caution: the back panel is harder to remove than you might think. Especially because you may be removing the *screen* by mistake. When you have a "grip" with the tool make sure the metallic border is not coming off with it, and when you have removed enough to be able to lift the panel, make sure it isn't attached by ribbons - in that case you've been removing the screen. A good idea is to gently press your finger nail against the weak plastic located between the back and the SIM slot, and going up and down and sideways until you hear a click. Then you can start from there with the opening tool. As recommended be very gentle around the SIM slot.

    • Using a pair of tweezers, remove the plastic plugs.

    • Once the hidden screws are revealed, use a PH #00 screwdriver to remove the three 3.175mm screws.

    • Use the PH #00 screwdriver to remove the remaining six 3.175 screws.

    The plugs are annoying to open for the first time. They're shaped like little pegs, but I was able to poke at them with screwdrivers enough to open.

    Roger - 回复

    the best spot to start prying the cover open is at the cable outlet for the power/volume buttons (careful not to dameage the wires)

    Marius137 - 回复

    A needle works best to remove the plugs.

    I second this. I used a sewing pin and the plugs came out in no time!

    Be careful not to displace the rear camera when replacing the motherboard cover.

    when I lifted the motherboard cover the battery cable stuck on it so that I lifted both, the plastic cover and the cable - step 4 below was not necessary to perform. Be careful!

    • Using a plastic opening tool, gently pry up the black plastic cover and remove it from the device.

    At the top right of your device you see a white dot. That white dot is the warranty sticker. You need to take off that sticker in order to get to the screw that lies underneath. Then unscrew that screw. Otherwise you will not be able to pry off this cover.

    • After we have removed the motherboard cover, we notice that the battery is intact and has a black ribbon attached to it, which is mounted on the logic board.

    • Using the spudger, carefully begin to lift the the battery up from the side opposite the ribbon. Be aware that there is high-grade adhesive holding the battery in its bay, so proceed with caution.

    • This battery is not encased in a hard shell so it is soft and malleable. Caution must be taken during removal so as not to cause permanent damage.

    This took a ton of force to remove from the adhesive!

    Also I was able to take off the cable before removing the battery.

    Roger - 回复

    Is it OK to use the battery if I bent it during removal? I had to 'iron' it flat, but I think it might still be useable...

    Henry Annand - 回复

    the best way to remove the battery is to lever the left side up from the bottom and remove it from the glue with an old credit card

    Marius137 - 回复

    Do this! it comes up very easily this way. All the adhesive is on the right side.

    Daniel ONeill -

    Great suggestion with a card to remove the battery!

    Jeff Mack -

    Thanks for this trick saved me a lot of time

    George P -

    I second Dangerous Picture's suggestion. I found it very helpful to remove the ribbon from the dock (it was easy to do) before trying to remove the battery.

    Stan Barton - 回复

    on my phone extensive use of glue was concentrated on just one side (right hand side). Not impossible to remove, little tricky

    Rene Hommel - 回复

    I mistakenly removed the battery with force, and the back peeled and brought out smoke, seemingly like it's gonna explode. Help !!!

    • Once the battery has been freed, we use the ever handy black spudger to pry up and free the battery ribbon from its dock.

    • You can disconnect the battery before freeing it to make removal easier.

    For step 4, the connection to the battery should always be done as soon as possible so after removing the back plate to the board would be ideal.

    Otherwise, very thorough so far!

    Thought I was going to snap my battery in half but patience and slight pressure did the trick.

    Also agreeing the battery should be disconnected as soon as possible.

    There are several connectors to the motherboard. In the picture above, one connector above and, below the screw thread, three more connectors. Be careful to reconnect any connectors accidentally disconnected while disconnecting / removeing the battery. In my case the connector shown at the top of the row came unconnected.

    salut, pour moi le connecteur à la nappe était collé au cache en plastique qui couvrait la carte mère … mais le reste s’est bien passé.

    Thanks Buddy, I replaced battery of my one plus one and when I switched it on, touch was not working. It was heart sinking panic moment...Then I came across https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus... post, simple trick of sliding piece of paper below battery solved and infact improved the touch response. Thanks !

    When putting in the new battery, the battery ribbon cable did not line up with the dock on the motherboard, on the replacement battery I ordered from iFixIt. I was able to carefully peel back the foil covering ribbon cable, align the cable, then press the foil back in place. Now, everything seems to be working.

    • Using a black spudger, disconnect all connectors by lifting up gently.

    VERY IMPORTANT LAST STEP before you pry out the motherboard!!! In the bottom left corner there is one last screw to remove, its like a tiny black dot just up to the volume ribbon. Remove that otherwise you break the board doing so.

    • Using a pair of tweezers, gently lift the front facing camera out of the device.

    There is a small screw in the lower left corner of the motherboard that also needs to be removed in this step. It’s visible here just above where the power button ribbon crosses the corner of the motherboard.

    • Gently lift the top side of the motherboard and disconnect the antenna to free it from the device.

    • The volume and power buttons are soldered onto the motherboard and must be removed with it. To make the process easier, gently pry the buttons out before removing the motherboard.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
