Before replacing glass remove motherboard and other parts. So heat will not damage them.
Just to say, that after all this time, i finally got the guts to do it, and everything went very weel, i used a professional hairdryer, a knife, and in 5 minutes, all come off, then i used double tape especially for this, and itīs done.

Great nice to hear that.
It took me 1 hour because i was afraid that i might damage screen and i was using normal hairdryer.
and i didn't use any tape i just push the glass firmly.

Hi Krzychu,

Can you clarify on the exact hardware that you speak of here please? Got a link, a picture or something to identify this hardware?

Or do you mean the process of removing the panel from the Mid Frame and its delicate nature of doing so.

As many would likely imagine or vouch that certainly it is quite a tricky process to manually have this down to a fine art.

I cannot imagine there be any experts in this world who have not actually broken one, as normally for whatever reason, it seems one need to break one or two just to get the complete knack of the manual removal process, IMO~!

If there is such Panel removal hardware for these, then I certainly am all ears and keen to see

wewh... looking at your review, considering lower screen quality is inevitable, it seems that it will not be worthed replacing the screen by ourself.

Well, you get what you pay for. $20 screen repair = ~20% of the quality of a full assembly replacement.

Separating the screen assembly from the frame? Nope!
