Default Avoiding question?

Hi guys

In this 17 pgs thread one question is asked many times but newer properly answered... Atleast I can´t find any solid answer.

How do I change the glass only, not the whole display?

I can´t find any pictures or good answers on this. Heatgun is no answer, only a clue ...
I want to know if the phone has to be in molekules first or if I can just heat the glass and rip it of? Maybe remove the battery only

Is there any connections between the glass and the display (or how you say)?

Do I have to heat up the new glass before attaching for the 3M tape to stick?
Do I tape around the whole glass or just in a few places? Is the tape precut?

Is it stupid to solve it like this even though the touch- stuff is ok?


The one who answers this answers the single most asked question in this whole thread

Great thread!

The glass is pretty shattered, from what I could see is that if u use heatgun and start lifting gently from one side and heat constanly u should be able to lift the glass to which the screen is stuck with adhesive as well, I think. Then u could probably separate the glass from the screen and stick the new glass back, but not sure. Someone should contact ifixyouri and ask them about specifics

Any ideas where could I find cheapest screen replacement assembly with shipping to Finland? Any recommendations? Or how much would it roughly cost?

It's pity that it's not possible to only replace the glass cause my display is flawless but the glass is cracked. :/

Hei vaan - noin €90? Ostin mun oman näytön ebay:sta englannista.

Tuntuu että hinnat noussu kun halvimmat mitä löysin oli noin 130e?

The prises must have gone up cause the cheapest I found was like 130€?

Ehkä....tämä oli mun myyjä:
http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/tazz5jones/
Hänellä ei ole mitään näyttöjä tällä hetkellä. Ehkä voisitte lähettää hänelle sähköpostia?

(This was the ebay seller. He does't have any screens for sale at the moment. Perhaps you should send him an email?)

Mun suomea ei ole täydellinen vielä!
