Instead of using the iOpener, I opted for my “patented” “Rice in a sock” and heated the sock for 1 minute, which worked perfectly. I laid the heated sock flat and used it as a mini work bench while removing the adhesive strip! My wife uses this for when she has head aches, which caused “me to not have a headache”, when peeling back the adhesive strips!
This was a pretty straight forward guide. I used the soda can method to hold the screen side of my phone after unclipping the home button cable. I was a lot easier and cut the repair time in half. Just remember to take your time and be audibly alert went clicking in your connectors and if you have resistance, start over to make sure that your connectors are lined up! Thank you.
I had the same problem with the ground clip! I’m glad that I didn't for it.
The iSclack tool is a no brainer. I simply cleaned both areas were the suction cup secured to and pushed the ends of the iSclack together. Could not have been easier! The use of a zip tie did interest me, but I went the easiest way for no mistakes (iSclack). Be sure to hold the top of the phone securely, when open the bottom, which ever options you choose.
