my jade lives again, so am happy
i was right , the ribbons for the lcd are the plug type, you cant rally mess this up unless you push too hard at a funny angle, just lift from underneath like in the guide. the digitiser has a black clip that you lift to release the ribbon than slide it out.
i never removed the tape from the lcd, but did from the ribbons and re used it after, if all your doing is changing housing, just remove the button pcb and lcd as one like i did , its eaiser
i was right , removing the old digitiser was a right pain, but i got there in the end lol.
i totally agree with the whole moisture thing, cut my old one up into layers and moisture in the wrong place will sure mess it up. il try it if it ever happens again so thanks for the info
hope this was helpfull
