I did it by hand, and it did not come out perfect. Had I not got my finger stuck to it at one point, I likely could have had a near perfect set. Because of that, though, I have an air pocket of sorts (it folded up slightly and I can't press it down) on the left side about 1/2" or so and random speckles here and there.
Initially, I had a ton of bubbles and was really upset. I thought I messed it up bad. I was able to press EXTREMELY hard with my fingers on each individual section of bubbles and press them flat.
Overall, it's not perfect but there's no dust at all under the screen so far and that annoying "rainbow" circle isn't present. When I did it without the optical tape, the rainbow was there, I could hardly see in the sun and my screen was filled up with dust.
