If I helped you in any way please consider donating something so I can buy a new phone. The HTC One is dead due to an issue with the USB connector or something else that I'm still not aware. I will use this phone as a test bed from now on to see if I can fix other stuff without breaking too so I do need a new phone. You can donate here: http://bit.ly/1a9vqqg
Thanks and enjoy the video! I hope it helps a lot of people.
A video will be uploaded here: (it's 04:37am GMT -2) and still 205 minutes left to upload. Video will be 720p and it's 1.2gb so yeah, it will take a while. But now I'm off to bed. And sorry for my english. I'm ok writing but I'm so so when speaking.
I said I would edit the video but since it's just shy of 19 minutes I figured I would leave it like that.
If you guys have any idea on what to do to help me fix the charging issue I would see if I can try that now that the phone can be easily opened.
I managed to open mine up today after a cracked screen.
I popped off the volume and slid a wooden ice cream stick between the back cover and the battery and then used a guitar pick to gently prize the rest open.
I managed to do it without damaging either the front or the back with relative ease, Once one side is out you can pivot the entire screen and midsection out.
I made sure to put no force on the rim around the back as its pretty thin and delicate, also mind the sim slot, volume and headphone socket as these look likely to break!
It can be done!
