I am sure the iOpener does work, but it probably takes a long time to heat the adhesive enough for screen removal and would require several applications. I got one as part of my screen replacement kit, although I have a heat gun so I didn’t end up using it. That being said my screen took at least four minutes of heating, with some re-heating to remove the broken shards. I would also imagine that adhesives vary from manufacturer, since this is my first screen replacement all I know is that the adhesive on the Pixel XL is really strong!
First time repairing a smartphone. I broke my Pixel XL’s screen months ago and although it was still fully functional, the screen was broken at the top near the grill. I was motivated to fix it myself since I didn’t trust leaving at a repair center and I thought it would be an interesting to try it myself.
Parts: Google Pixel XL Screen and Digitizer (includes adhesive and tools)
Tools used: 1100W heat gun, suction cup, opening picks, plastic spudger, T5 Torx screwdriver and angled tweezers
Tools not used: iOpener
Time to complete: 1+ hour
I referenced the guide when necessary. I didn’t use the iOpener, I can’t see this working well as it took well over 4 minutes of heating the screen with my 1100W heat gun, which I used on low since high would probably have cooked my phone! My screen was broken near the top grill so I had to re-heat that area and remove the shards with tweezers. The repair time was an hour, not including prep and clean up. Removing the tiny shards and adhesive was the most time consuming.
Thanks! I probably would have missed it. Since I changed the screen color from white to black I colored the screen black with a permanent Sharpie, worked perfectly.
