I need to gain access to the micro usb port on the Active. There are many videos on tearing down the s5 but I can't seem to find any info on the active. Does anyone have any information on the tear down sequence for the Active, or any links? Thanks.

What a strange site. Apparently you have to contact them for information on becoming a client and if you they bless you with this privilege you can then purchase the teardown.

check out the s4 active teardown then see what has changed on the S5 Active and compare. usually its fairly similar and not that much different. Just remember to take your time and dont rush or force anything.

s5 active teardown
Theres only one screw visible. The lcd/digitizer has hella adhesive.Not just around the edges like the S5.Youll more than likely have to replace the screen with any repair on this one and very few screens available so far.

Active Teardown
To repeat, does anyone have any resources for tearing down the S5 Active? There are a number of differences between the S4 active and the standard S5 and you can't just "start taking screws out," as there is only one screw on the back. The LCD/digitizer is one unit and will need to be removed together, but what about the rest of the components? It's not clear how to access the control board. Repeat, does anyone know of any resources for a complete tear down?

I'm working on getting a hold of an S5 active with a broken screen... if I do I'll try to video the teardown and post it.
