I just did mine last night. I chose the disassemble it down to the screen and heated the class. I was able to reuse the tape for the new screen. Make sure to heat the glass side only this way the adhesive come off the glass and not the metal housing. I used a business card to slide under the screen where I had already separated. At first it looked like I was pushing into something soft under the screen but after I got the glass off I realized it was adhesive. I removed and clean the digitizer and cleared the screen but keep the black double sided adhesive intact and reused it for my new screen. I also left my screen protector on and it kept the glass from splintering so I had no glass to clean from the screen

And make sure you clean up the residue left from the glue real good. if you don't your phones screen won't work correctly.

To avoid this mess, buy a good high quality case to prepare for the drunken nights.

**** **** **** **** ****. As I ran around the edge of my phone with a pen knife I cut through the ribbon that connects the two touch sensitive buttons on the bottom.

Also, on the screen some of the thin film came off with the screen, but some of it is still stuck on. That would have been a problem anyway I'm guessing?

So what are my options now? Get a new screen and digitiser, and the two touch sensitive buttons? Is that even possible? Googling now but if anyone here has been as stupid as I have I'd love to hear from you!

Only option find a new whole glass with digitizer. Good luck.

Did you heat the whole glass at once or focus on one area at a time (ie the bottom, then middle then top)?

My glass came in today. About to start the adventure, but want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row first.

I don't have a heat gun, and don't have the extra cash right now, so I'm hoping the wives blow dryer will do the trick.

I've read others say they used a blow dryer so I'm hoping it's fine, lol.
