Default Samsung R0 Disassembly Guide

Hello guys,
For the need of the Rockbox port, I disassembled my R0. That's the occasion to provide a guide for those interested in disassembling their device or interested in watching the hardware inside hehe

Click on a picture to view it in high resolution (5 megapixels)

The R0 is quite easy to disassemble compared to other players. It's well built and the risk of breaking something is rather weak.

All you need is a small screwdriver and a thin object.

Remove the 2 screw covers with the thin object

Remove the 2 screws and don't forget where you put them, they are very small and can be easily lost.

Then you can remove the connectors cap

That's my most beloved step! Indeed, usually on DAPs it's very hard to open the case as it's clipsed. Here you just have to slide up the screen! Magical!

Remove the clipsed PCB cover with the thin object

Here you are!

Remove the only screw on the PCB

That's the most dangerous step. Carefully lift the small black part with the thin object then remove the buttons and screen connectors.

Use the thin object to remove the PCB. Be careful of the soldered battery!

At first, I tried to remove only the battery but as you can see, there's a lot of glue so I thought that would not be a good idea finally
It's better to remove the whole part: screen + battery together.

The soldered 600mAh battery. Looks like a "no-name" one. Should be possible to replace it if you have some soldering knowledges but first you have to find a similar battery. Good luck...

edit: dfkt just told me it's not a "no-name" battery at all but a amperex technology limited one
