I have a unbranded UK HD2 that has a broken digitizer. I read that its easier to buy a screen and digitizer together but have also read that there are 2 types of digitizer connections. I have found a replacement screen on ebay from a UK seller. Does it matter what type of screen i get if the digitizer already on it? If it does, how do i know which one to get?

Any help much appreciated

If buying digi & LCD as 1 assembly then not important really.
If you decide to get just digi then check it first either physically when open or via SPL bootloader details (has to be SPL as HSPL does not show this info)
Not that hard to separate & rebond just digi but if have little experience probably best get built lcd/digi.
Amazing how many people crack LCD when remove rear housing. Just make sure you use plastic pry tool & use a thumb to press on battery label to help push chassis assembly forward, pry at either side of speaker grill & work down side a little AVOIDING volume switch area & do not push tools in deeply, lift top & right side first & they pop out easily & extra care will pay when rebuilding ...

An appropriate advice from a guy that knows what he's talking about, really!

Using "Thanks" button would be more useful, don't you think?
