    Hi all :D i ordered parts to change my iphone 4 from black, to red. But the process seems scary and dangerous. I have some kind of knowledge of taking apart older iphones, but i know that wont help me.

    So does anyone recommend a great guide? Maybe a fully detailed youtube video? I plan on using one by ZEETRON. heres a look :

    u are taking an arduous task. Make sure u get a tray to hold/separate all the little screws.

    Or tape and label each different screw to a piece of paper.

    There will be 10's of screws all of different sizes so make sure all screws are labelled so you don't lose them. It is near impossible to work out which screw is which if you don't label them and the screws only work in the slot they are designed for.

    So true. iFixIt labels all of the screws with different colors. I suggest printing the instructions and taping the screws next to the step you're on and labeling the screws with which color they correspond to. You can never be too organized.
