Do you have a damaged or cracked screen on your HTC HD2? Having problem with the display and other internal parts? This written repair guide will walk you through all the steps required to disassemble your HTC HD2 and repair a damaged screen or other internal parts in a safe, quick manner.

This guide will help you to install the following HTC HD2 part(s):
  • HTC HD2 LCD Screen Display Replacement
  • HTC HD2 Glass Touch Screen Digitizer Replacement
  • HTC HD2 Loud Speaker Replacement
  • HTC HD2 Ear Speaker Replacement
  • Other HD2 Replacement Parts

Tools Required:
  • Safe Open Pry Tool
  • T5 Torx Screwdriver
  • Pair of Tweezers (optional)

HTC HD2 Written Repair Guide:
  • First remove the battery cover and battery from the HD2.
  • Now you will need to remove four T-5 Torx screws from housing surrounding the battery. Apply pressure to the area of the battery and use a safe open pry tool to release the housing from the chassis.
  • Using your pry tool, slide it along the outside edges until the housing is removed from the chassis, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1
  • Remove the 5 Torx Screws from the Chassis located in Figure 2. Remove the flash cable connector from the motherboard to the flash frame camera. Use a safe open pry tool to pop the black antenna cable from the motherboard and upper board.

Figure 2
  • Then remove the keyboard flex cable connector from the motherboard. Do this by using a safe open pry tool to lift up on the alligator clip, and remove the ribbon. Remove the label located below the battery.
  • Pop the white cable from the GPS unit located in the left top corner and work your way to the motherboard. Remove the GPS board.
  • Now, release the volume flex from the housing. Use a safe pry tool to remove the adhesive holding the motherboard flex cable in place.
  • You can now flip the motherboard and flex to the side, exposing the LCD flex cable connector. Use a pry tool to move the clip forward and release the cable as shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3
  • Use a hair dryer or heat gun to heat the front of the digitizer, working in quick movements for 1-2 minutes.
  • Slide a safe open pry tool along the edges to remove the metal housing from the screen assembly as shown in Figure 4.

Figure 4
  • Remove the buttons from the lower portion of the digitizer. Slide a pry tool in between the LCD screen and digitizer to separate the two.
  • You can now replace either the touch screen digitizer or the LCD screen
  • Now you will be able to replace any parts on your HTC HD2. Simply replace the damaged parts with the new ones and reverse the order to put your phone back together again.

Nice guide! In my opinion, this should be stickied..

I wish I had this guide when I first took apart my HD2 because it is clearer to me than the video

Note that you should also remove your sim card before disassembly. I could not get mine apart for ages until I realised this
