Tools required for disassembly: Torx 5 screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Five screws need to be removed. The two at the bottom of the phone are longer than the other three. Make a note where each screw goes. XDA Orbit 2 disassembly stage 1 Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment and lever it from the rest of the phone. XDA Orbit 2 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. Now remove the four screws you can see. XDA Orbit 2 disassembly stage 3 Run something like a credit card around the join of the front cover and lever it from the rest of the phone. You can then separate the front and back of the phone.

Each ribbon attaches with a zif connector. This kind of connector has a latch which opens and closes on a hinge. When the latch is open the ribbon cable can be slid in and out of its connector. The two ribbons in the middle of the phone have tape over them. Remove the tape and then disconnect the ribbons. Also disconnect the small ribbon circled near the bottom of the phone.

Pry these away to release the front cover. XDA Orbit 2 disassembly stage 6 With the front cover removed your phone should look like below.
