Remove the two screws circled in red with a pentalobe screwdriver as shown on the picture. 

They are located at the bottom of the iPhone around the dock connector (lightning).


Step 3

Place the suction cup on the iPhone 5.

The suction cup has to be as close to the home button as possible (circular bottom button)

If you want it to stick correctly, the suction cup needs to be on the whole screen.

For better results, we recommend that you use the ventouse premium.

Pull the suction cup strongly enough to create a space between the front panel and the rest of the screen.

Gently insert a nylon spudger inside that space and pry up.
