    The decision to replace my Q10 screen has been made! Only one questions remains - "What tools will I need?"

    I've seen a few videos and read as much as I can. Nowhere do I see - You need a t3, t4, pentalobe...etc.

    Can anyone provide a list of necessary tools to dismantle my Q10?

    Thank you in advance!

    Head over to ifixit and read the Z10 teardown, they have listed all the tools necessary, should be same for the Q.

    Just visited ifixit. What a great site! Too bad they dont have a q10 tear down. The one for the z10 is very helpful.

    Thank you for the help. I wonder if anyone who has dismantled the q10 can chime in..seems like one of the videos I watched said they used a pentalobe and even mentioned a +0000 Phillips. Gotta be someone or somewhere to find out exactly!

    I would be interested in a follow-up when you receive the tool kit. That is, which kit you ordered and whether it met your needs. I'm looking at converting my DAC and had the same questions as the OP.

    Tear down - What tools will I need?-photo1.jpg

    WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DIY!

    you can see the tools I've used to change the screen of my Q10. It was relatively easy tbh, I followed a video on the web (dont remember which one) and was done in 20min!

    nothing too fragile, just be careful when reconnecting the different hardware pieces to the motherboard!

    good luck and let us know

    you'll do fine, and it's so rewarding when you switch it on after repairing it

    I've got good news and bad news. Good news - I completely tore down and reassembled my q10.

    Bad new- it's still failing the sensor tests.

    New mother board?
