    Step 1 Screen
    • Slip a small iPod opening tool underneath the screen, gently sliding it around the inside edge.
    • The gently use leverage to remove the screen trim. To do this it may be easier to start at the corners.



    Step 2
    • Remove the four Phillips #00 screws around the edge of the screen.


    Step 3
    • Using a small iPod opening tool, slide it under the top portion of the metal frame of your device and gently lift it up.
    • Then slide the tool around the inner edge of the device until the metal piece can be easily removed.
    • Take your time with this step - it may be difficult to remove the frame. Some force may be necessary but be careful not to bend the interior metal bracket of the frame, as it is very fragile.



    Step 4
    • Very slowly lift up the screen away from the rest of the device, making sure that the orange strip connecting the screen to the logic board doesn't snap.



    Step 5

    • Remove the three Phillips #00 screws connecting the logic board to the plastic housing:
      • Two of the screws are located at the bottom of the first picture.
      • The third screw is hidden under the orange strip, which is located under the screen. You may have to carefully lift the screen in order to get to it.



    Step 6
    • Turn the screen over and follow the red, yellow and black wire to its source. Pull gently on the plastic casing connecting the battery wires to the logic board.
    • Do the same with the black and red wire that connects the speaker to the logic board.
    • Once disconnected, the logic board and screen may be removed from the housing.



    Step 7
    • To completely remove the screen, you must first unlock the small white latch connecting the orange strip to the logic board.
    • To do this, use your thumbs to push down and unlatch the tabs.
    • Then pull the orange strip out of the white connector housing (it should slide out easily; however, you might need to first lift up on the orange strip as their may be an adhesive holding it down).



    Step 8 Battery
    • Once the screen and logic board is completely removed from the housing, the battery is now accessible
    • Slip a small iPod opening tool or flat head screwdriver under the battery and slowly pry it out
    • It is held on with strong adhesive, so it may require some force but be careful as to not damage the housing
    • Once removed, slip in the new battery

    It sounds like you've already chosen to do it your way (which may or may not possible will work) so good luck

    You can't just find an phone battery that fits in there and solder 2 wires to phone battery, because as you see in your Pic you have exposed the polymer cell and the Electronics that monitors the batteries state of charge and discharge and if you remove that electronics the battery will explode on the first charge.
    Very dangerous exercise if don't know anything about Electronics.
