Restore the back cover waterproofness

How did you attach the back cover of your phone after opening it (e.g. for replacing the battery)? Did you manage to keep it waterproof?

If you got the phone repaired by your Local support then the phone will be waterproof.

based on your other post, it seems that you DIY (repaired the phone yourself)

 

You need to buy new double sided adhesive

Re: Restore the back cover waterproofness

Thank you, comrade, but (again) I don't want to wait for it to be delivered, so I'd like to try to use something which could be found locally.

Then you might not be able to properly seal it.
