Step 2. Remove the tray
Use the Key tool (aka Needle) or Paperclip. Push the tip all the way into the hole until the tray ejects, and then pull the tray of SIM and Memory card (Micro SD) out.
⚠️ Pay attention! The tool must be inserted into a hole on the edge of the phone's housing. Do not press too hard. It may break the tray eject mechanism.
Step 3. Open the back cover
Using a spudger or a plastic pick, carefully, around the edge, detach the back cover clips, and remove it.
Do not insert the tool deeply or bend it. Otherwise, the housing may be tampered with or damaged.
⚠️ Be careful when opening the cover from the volume and power buttons side. Thin cable and fragile buttons are straightforward to damage.
⚠️ Look in advance in the picture for the cables’ location for inter-board, touchscreen, display, buttons (if any) under the cover to not damage them accidentally.
Step 6. Disconnect the battery connector
ℹ️️ The Samsung Galaxy M01 SM-M015 model has a battery HQ-61N with 4000 mAh capacity (aka rechargeable battery).
⚠️ It is highly recommended to disconnect the connector to avoid possible short circuits during disassembly.

ℹ️️ The board contains a charging port (Micro USB), microphone, spring contacts for the speaker, vibration motor, and an antenna unit.
⚠️ It is not necessary to insert the tool under the board when removing the sub-board. Internal components could be damaged.
Step 12. Remove the cameras
Disconnect the connectors (including a display module cable connector) and remove two rear cameras and one front (selfie) camera.
