    Default 3GS rebuild

    Hey guys I had a friend try to change the back housing got about 90 percent and realized he attempted more than he was able to ... I have done most repairs but never a 3GS complete housing I looked for some videos but none show me step by step how to put it back together .. Normally not a big deal except I got handed a bag of screws and 3GS parts lol so I didn't take it apart
    screws are not mapped out nothing ,
    does anyone know a site with a good reassembly how to video ? Any help I would appreciate

    Try youtube. I hear that is a rather hairy beast to disassemble and reassemble, that came from someone who fixes iPhones and iPads for a living.... Good luck!
