If you ever need to replace a broken screen or other parts on your Galaxy S2, it’s very easy to disassemble and assemble your Galaxy S2.

For a whole month, my screen on my Galaxy S2 i9100 was flickering a bit and I took my Galaxy S2 apart to fix the issue. It turns out one of the LCD cables became loose and upon re-connecting them, my phone was back to 100%.

And while I was at it, I took a video of me disassembling and assembling the Galaxy S2 i9100. But the process is nearly identical for all Galaxy S2 series including the SGH-i777, SGH-T989, and the Epic 4G Touch.

Anyways, this video could help you so keep in mind. All you need is a screwdriver and about 20 minutes of your time, very safe to do.

While I was at it, I switched the back casing on my white i9100 and black SGH-i777, now I have two “black and white” phones, looks pretty cool and customized:

    Great site you have here bro! I’m from Holland so you can say it reaches people all over the world!
    I do have a question for ya, hope you can and are willing to help me out here…
    When i touch my touchscreen and hold my finger down at the same place, the screen is “shaking” It’s like the phone can’t really tell where exactly i’m touching the screen. A couple of months ago my phone was repaired due to a fall, and the touchscreen was replaced. I had this problem before, right out of the box, and after the repair it was still there, so I figured it’s not the screen itself.

    Is there a part in the phone I could try to fix? replace?

    Hope my english is good enough for you to understand what I mean :) thnx man, appreciate your help!

    Is it possible to replace a broken screen of the SGS 2 (GT-i9100 – EU model) with 3 buttons with the screen of the SGS 2 (Epic 4G Touch D710 – US model) with 4! buttons?

    • Max

      You can but a lot of hacking would be required.
