display from the case On the iPhone 7 Plus, the top of the display
has latches inside So, when you opening case pull the display
down. The iPhone 7 Plus case opens like a book,
that is, you open the case by folding the display module to the right. You can place a suction cup under the display
so as not to damage the cable when disconnected. Now you need a Tri-Wing 0.8mm screwdriver. Take a screwdriver and remove 4 screws from
the metal panel. Now disconnect the battery cable from the
iPhone motherboard. Next, remove 3 more screws on the top of motherboard
and remove the second metal panel. Disconnect 3 cables of the display from the
mainboard of iPhone. Now lets begin to removing the motherboard
and for this you need a Phillips screwdriver. Also for removing the motherboard, you need
Standoff 1.5 mm screwdriver that is in our HowFixit One screwdriver set. Disconnect two camera cables from the mainboard
and remove the camera from the case. Unscrew 2 screws, one of which is located
on the inner of case. Disconnect the cable from the board and carefully
peel off the cable from the metal panel. Next, unscrew another 2 screws and remove

the display to the motherboard and only after that connect the battery cable. As you can see, the iPhone show message that
the Touch-ID function does not work and, therefore, the home button does not work. That’s because the old button is tied to the
iPhone 7 Plus motherboard and the new motherboard that I installed will not work with the old
home button at all, it won’t even work when pressed In this case, there are 2 ways to solve this
problem: you buy a new motherboard with the home button, or you can install the universal
home button. How to install the universal home button;

mainboard of the smartphone, and then connect the battery cable. Install metal panels and fasten the screws. Turn the display over and push it to the back
cover. Fasten the last 2 screws near the charging
