LG Optimus G Pro Tear Down Guide:
Before you begin you must make sure to power off your device completely.
To start you will need to remove the back cover of the device as well as the battery, sim card, and Micro-SD card.
Next step you will need to remove the 14 Small Phillips Screws (#00) securing the back housing to the device.
Once those screws have been removed you can take your safe open pry tool to release the clips holding the back housing to the mid-frame. (work your way around the housing being careful not to break any of the clips)
Once the back housing has been removed you can now begin to release the 4 pop connectors and antenna cable as shown in the figure below.
You will also need to release the rear camera from the housing using your plastic pry tool (Be careful not to rip or tear the attached flex cable.)
After all the appropriate connections have been released you can now carefully remove the motherboard from the device.
Be cautious as the motherboard is slightly fastened in the housing with a small clip that could potentially damaged the small and narrow portion of the motherboard.
Now that you have safely removed the motherboard you can now begin removing the last few necessary components to start the screen removal process.
First you will need to lift up the touch screen digitizer’s flex cable and remove the ear speaker (both are held with a little adhesive)
Next you can take your plastic pry tool to gently pry up the lower USB port / soft key assembly and remove it from the device.
You will now be able to begin applying heat to the screen assembly to be able to remove the LCD and touch screen digitizer.
Using your heat source on a medium setting you will want to evenly apply heat to all outer edges of the screen for 30-45 second intervals.
Be cautious not to hover over and flex ribbons that you may need to reuse for re-assembly.
