Insides of the Z2
So... yeah... i've managed to break the back glass of my Z2.
After dozens of crashes on the floor one unlucky day my back glass shattered.
Well, Shít Happens, not that much of a problem. Bought an 8$ replacement back cover from Witrigs
, while at it i've also bought a new Headphone Jack
(my old was having problem getting a stable connection) and a Tempered Glass Screen Protector
(well, if it protects the front it will also work on the back, paid 25$ express shipping so another 11$ for the Screen Protector aren't that expensive^^)
Replacing a broken back cover is quite a hassle. It shatters more and more ^^
if only replacing the Back cover i'd be finish at this point, but yeah, the headphone jack.... hidden under the mainboard. yay.
Here you can see the Mainboard and the heatpipe for the SoC (jep the SoC is also covered by a heatspreader
lame can't see stuff )
Headphone jack is gone
(that stuff is waterproof and glued on... damn... realy good glue there)
so yeah, i've put everything back together and cleaned the borders for the new back cover.
Phone is back and everything is working, no problems with overheating and stuff, everything like always.
There are just two little but very important points to know when doing this.
A: You cannot unmount the mainboard when a microSD card inserted, it's physically not possible the card is to big and blocks.
B: When using a heater to melt the glue on the back cover, make so to unplug the microSD card before, these damn suckers don't like heat.
Oh yeah, and the Backside foil from the Nillkin Tempered Glass Screen Protector is a simple plastic foil and not the same 0.2mm tempered glass like on the Frontside -.-
