Remove the bottom screws using a pentalobe screw driver.
Using the suction cup tool we are going to separate the screen assembly from the chassis. Place the suction cup onto the screen near the home button and pull upward just enough so that there is a gap in between the frame and the screen assembly.Use you case opener tool and work around the gap until it's loose..
STEP 2: BATTERY CONNECTION AND REMOVE METAL SHIELD
Using the case opener tool, disconnect the battery. Move your way up and you will find the cables connecting the LCD, digitizer, and front facing camera assembly. Disconnect them all from the logic board connection.
STEP 3: THE SCREEN ASSEMBLY AND FRONT CAMERA
In order to reuse all the parts that are on the damaged screen assembly, you will need to take the right parts of it and transfer it to your replacement screen assembly.
Remove these next two screws that hold down ear speaker and the front camera assembly. Underneath that will be a small plastic washer, remove this small plastic washer.
Using a case opener tool, carefully remove the front camera assembly. It's held in place by some adhesive.
STEP 4: REMOVE LCD AND HOME BUTTON
Remove these next few screws holding down the LCD shielding plate. Once the screws are removed, take the shield off and put it aside.
Remove these 2 screws that hold down the ribbon cable of the home button. Gently pry up the home button cable as it's still attached by some adhesive. Remove the home button by pressing it inward.
STEP 5: NEW LCD
Install the LCD shielding plate. Screw it into place.
STEP 6: FRONT CAMERA ASSEMBLY AND SPEAKER
Reinstall the front camera assembly. Reinstall the small plastic washer.
STEP 7: PLACING NEW SCREEN ASSEMBLY ONTO REAR CASE
Carefully reinstall the screen assembly back onto the rear case of the iphone 5. Reattach the 3 cables and make sure they snap into place to avoid any problems with loose connections. Reinstall the shield cover that goes on top of the connections.
STEP 8: FIX BATTERY
Connect the battery back into place. Secure the metal shield over it
STEP 9: FINAL STEP
We can now secure the front screen assembly to the chassis. Make sure the top is flush and then work your way down pushing down towards the bottom until the screen is flush with the frame. Once the screen is flush, reinstall the pentalobe screws at the bottom.
