But there is people that might want to post in here for information so it will be left open.

If the flaming starts back up though, I will close this thread.

Leave it open, please. I'll post my results when my glass arrives from China in about couple of weeks tops.

Hello, A friend of mine tried to change the glass yesterday, we made it all out okay but the screen is ALL GREEN like there are only green pixels showing up, we havnt tried putting it off again to check where we might have misconnected the screen or something, can anyone point us toward which part of the phone or cable we must check ?
Or is the screen itself damaged ? (there is no black pixel or black line whatsoever, the screen looks perfect except it's all green huedright from the start (galaxy logo is green too) lol.
Thanks

I don't know, I need to check if all the wires are at the right place, Theres only one dent on the LCD and to me it seems strange one dents would kill all the colors blue and red instead of making a dead line of pixels or something. We didn't heat the LCD much, not over 60C

This is an excellent thread and please leave it open. I have replaced screen on i9000 before in the same way.....i did crunch a screen on the first one i tried ( didn't realise they were stuck together)

don't see the harm in having a go....as you have to pay the full price for a new digitizer+ screen anyway....so if it breaks foook it!! if not , you are sorted.

people who don't want to help or cant provide anything usefull should not post. That way the thread will stay clean.

I will be attempting to replace the casing on an s2.....hopefully it will go ok.

i was wondering if the LCD was glued to the digitizer glass.... dang, thats gonna be difficult to replace just the digitizer by itself.

This guy did it as well...

I'm also looking at this, just because replacing the whole screen is always an option if this fails.. And it just seems wasteful to throw away a perfectly ok screen just because of some 'stickyness' .....
Any more tips / insights on improving the succesrate?
