  1. I used a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the bottom screws on my iPhone 8, I got it open and then screwed something up because the screen would light up but I couldn’t enter my password because the touchscreen stopped working

  2. Yes, purchasing a good quality driver set made all the difference in the world for me in making things so much easier. What once was anxiety producing, the fear of stripping or damaging a screw, has now become pleasurable endeavor.

  3. I often use an eighteen slot white empty "egg carton" for holding the screws .. easy to see background holder .. and setting the various parts next to the appropriate spot on the carton, or .. in the carton itself with the designated screws .. keeps them organized as well. Cheers ……….

  10. im worried now as my 5s is screen less and I took out the broken screen when the battery was still in. it wont ring and it wont vibrate only thing I get out of it is my pc recognizing itive ordered a cheap screen aswell!

  17. Hi Hugh, this is Winston from iMyFone software. I wonder if you can test our iOS System Rcovery program and publish a video review on your channel. If you're interested in this cooperation, please send an email and tell me about the price.

  18. Hi Hugh, I am going to start doing iPhone motherboard repairs here in Perth mainly as a hobby, like no back light, not charging, not turning on, no display, no touch etc…would this help you with some of your other phones that need more than parts swapping?

  19. When I repaired my iPhone 6 by replacing the screen, I put a long screw in to secure the home button bracket. It's perfect other than having a tiny hole next to the home button that's barely noticable and looks like a screen protector bubble after realizing my mistake and putting the screw where it actually belonged.
