Now remove the six screws you have access to. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 3 Next you need to separate the battery compartment from the rest of the phone. To do so lever it away using your opening tool. There are various recesses in the back of the phone do allow you to do this. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 4 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. Three ribbon connectors (circled in red) needs to be disconnected. Each attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever each one up to unplug. Note that the bottom connector has a piece of black sticky tape on it so you'll need to remove this before disconnecting the ribbon. Also remove the screw circled in white.

Below you can see the volume buttons after they have been unstuck from the side of the phone. You can now peel the large brown/orange ribbon away from the phone. It's held in place with double sided tape. The circuit board which the ribbon is connected to will come away with it. The on/off switch will be stuck down in the same way the volume button was and also needs to be peeled away when you remove the circuit board. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 7 Below you can see the large ribbon and circuit board removed. The on/off button will also come loose. Remove the screw, circled bottom left. The vibrating motor, circled bottom right, should be levered up so it is loose. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 8 Lift the lower circuit board up and you'll be able to see another ribbon connector which needs to be disconnected. Again, it attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this away from the circuit board to unplug. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 9 With the circuit board removed your phone should look like below. To screen is held firmly in place with double sided tape and to remove it you first need to heat the screen (using a hot air gun or a hair dryer), then push your opening tool very firmly in the circled area.

Move your plastic tool all the way around the edge of the screen to release it. HTC Touch HD disassembly stage 10 Below you can see the loosened screen.
