Step 2

Remove old camera lens ring. It's the silver piece. Take tweezers and pry it off. It doesn't matter if you scratch this piece up because it's going in the trash.

Step 3

Remove any pieces of the old camera lens. There will be a foam-like adhesive (kind of like 3M outdoor double sided sticky tape, but thinner?) under the lens and it's a pain to scrape it all off. What you see in the picture is what happens after you scrape the adhesive off. Clean the area using isopropyl alcohol.

Step 4

After verifying that camera lens and surrounding areas are clean and free of lint/debris/whatever, install the new camera lens. Press firmly so adhesive can adhere to phone body. Do not apply so much pressure as to crack the new lens, though. Remove protective plastic wrap off surface of solid black side of camera lens.

Step 5

 Install new camera lens ring, ensuring notched area aligns properly with phone body. The black adhesive goes around the lens itself while the clear adhesive adheres the ring to the body of the phone. Press firmly using your fingernails or tweezers.
