get the replacment screen first, see what's included. it should be pretty east. the infuse comes apart pretty straitforward. just six screws a lot of prying. i didnt do a screen repacement so im not sure of everything. i just took it apart for s's&g's.

get a "precision scredriver set" or the little screwdriver for an eye glass repair set.

also you got all you nomenclature wrong. the infuse doesnt have an lcd. it uses amoled technology(samoled+). and the protective glass is just that. glass, garilla glass from corning to be precise. but you could call the amoled screen a tft (thin film transistor) i believe. not positive but i think tft applies to lcd as well as amoled

i think what your going to need here is to heat up the from of the phone to get the screen to separate from the body of the phone. i looks like it is set up like the iPhone, glued to the frame. so if you see glue while prying it just heat it up real good then just separate it.

not sure bit most replacement screens I've seen for.Samsung phones have a lot more than the Tft. I don't think he'll need to separate the glass. but I guess that all depends on the screen he buys.

other than maybe for glass removal no glue is used that I can see. it is a pain to pry apart but it is not easy to break the plastic either. Samsung uses some tough plastics. a lot tougher than what HTC uses.

FARK! so i just f'ed up an infuse, we ordered the outer glass and back casing from china, it came today, and when i went to disassemble the infuse i found out the hard way that the digitizer was glued to the glass, not just around it but entirely, upon pulling it out the bottom (actual lcd) cracked the outer glass was already in glass shards and peices so i couldnt cleanly separate the glass from the digitizer, everything just went to hell, i tried putting it back together as it was functional before with just a cracked screen but now nothing comes up on the screen, sounds and vibration work but we cant answer phone calls wasted $40 to china and now have to get a complete top assembly to repair this phone

Watch those Youtube videos over and over until you have the process down, and even watch and pause the video as you follow actually doing it. Ive done this with the iPhone HTC Aria and a couple other ones.. never had to with my Infuse.
I always have my Otterbox case on! Dropped TWO stories off a big metal forging machine at my work... phone still works great! True story!

How do you like your ballistic case? I just ordered one for my friends LG Nitro because the otterbox isn't available for it yet..
Looks to be around the same price.. but might have a little more protection... and the option of running it without the outside rubber case.... that might be a nice option for when I am not at work....

I love my Otterbox... but sometimes its just to f****** bulky!

Just spoke with Samsung at 1-888-987-4357.

They will repair for $155.

Seems like the way to go if needing repair.
