I cracked my outer screen. The digitizer seems to be fine but If I plan to sell it, it's gotta be fixed beforehand.

Anyone got a breakdown for what I can do to fix this myself?

Ya, I think we all have had to replace a screen. It's not easy, but doable. Here is a good price on a replacement screen http://www.amazon.com/Black-Samsung-.../dp/B00HDAPL68 and this is a good video on how to do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMEeWEbtqcU I would watch the video a couple of times first. Or take it to Sprint corporate store they will usually do it while you wait, and may or may not charge you. Good Luck !!!

Yeah I did this and it worked fine just go slow when taking off the old screen heat it with a hair dryer as you peel it off and clean it real good after b4 install of the new screen try to find some kind of glue that may come with the new screen cuz after I did mine the first time it worked fine but the touch response was a lil slower then b4. But still way cheaper then sending it out for repair.

I'm mainly concerned about the glass itself, having connectors or ribbons that need solder

Look around in your city....like in Phoenix here there are a couple cell phone fix stores that will replace glass for like 20 bucks.... Well worth it for me not having to do it ...

The glass itself only has the bottom connectors for the back, menu and home .If you decide to install yourself just take your time and go slow and you'll be fine. Like the jimzweb1 said there are a number of youtube videos that will walk you though. http://youtu.be/S_BadHtLPbU How to Separate Glass Only on Galaxy Note 3!: http://youtu.be/HwrSdrySqec Hope these help a bit.

If you have insurance through Sprint, take it in, there is no deductible for just replacing the glass.
