If Samsung Galaxy S6 is frozen and not responsive, you can press and hold the Power button and the Volume down buttons simultaneously for more than 7 seconds to restart it.
2) Remove SIM card tray
Insert the SIM Puller (found in your phone box) into the SIM tray hole on the power button side of the phone. Apply pressure to feel the SIM drawer eject by itself and then remove it.
3) Remove rear glass
To lift the back panel you will need a suction cup, a hard plastic pick, and a heat gun (a hairdryer will also work) The back panel is glued to the frame, use a heat gun to heat the outer edges of the back panel to about 60°C (140°F). You can do it without the heat gun but it's easier with it.
Once the rear glass is hot enough, apply the suction cup near the bottom edge of the glass. Lift on the suction cup to create a small gap underneath the rear glass, and insert an opening pick into that gap. Slide the pick along the bottom edge of the phone to slice through the adhesive securing the rear glass.
Repeat the heating and cutting procedure for the remaining three sides of the phone. Leave an opening pick under each edge to prevent the adhesive from resealing. Then finally, remove the rear glass.
4) Remove midframe
Remove the thirteen 3.5mm Phillips #00 screws securing the mid-frame to the phone. Lift up on the mid-frame assembly while pushing down on the battery to separate the mid-frame assembly from the rest of the phone.
5) Disconnect battery
Use the spatula to disconnect the battery connector from its socket on the motherboard.
6) Disconnect Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
Use the same spatula to disconnect the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi antenna cable connectors from their sockets on the motherboard.
7) Disconnect the home button connector
Use the flat end of the spatula to disconnect the home button connector.
8) Disconnect display & earpiece speaker
Disconnect the display assembly cable from the motherboard. Then do the same for the earpiece speaker assembly cable connector from the motherboard.
9) Lift the motherboard
Lift the camera-side end of the motherboard to separate it from the display-frame. Don't fully remove the motherboard yet since it's still attached to the daughterboard. Lift it partly, then use the spatula to disconnect the daughterboard ribbon cable connector from its socket on the underside of the motherboard.
10) Remove front display
To lift the front panel you will need hard plastic pick, and a heat gun (a hairdryer will also work) The front panel is glued to the frame, use a heat gun to heat the outer edges of the back panel to about 60°C (140°F). You can do it without the heat gun but it's easier with it.
Insert the opening pick in the left edge of the phone, between the frame and display, at an upward angle. If you did it correctly, you will see a gap between the display frame and the display assembly. If it's done incorrectly, the pick will be visible through the glass. When this happens remove the pick and start again. When it's inserted correctly slide pick from side to side. Do this for all 4 sides of the phone.
Use an opening pick to gently pry the battery side of the frame away from the display. If the display and frame to not separate easily, use an opening pick to cut any remaining adhesive. If cutting is difficult, reheat the display again. When opened, remove all traces of old adhesive from the frame, while taking special care to remove any small glass fragments.
