i got my droid screen broken, but not the lcd just the glass, so i just changed the touchscreen and voila, it worked.

lcd screens are 280►300 dlls, so, its very expensive.

try calling motorola service

Any idea if anyone has found instructions on how to replace just the glass? Already had it replaced once via the insurance but don't want to drop that much cash again to fix the glass. With this edge to edge glass breaking a lot, I have a feeling I'll be replacing it more than once.

If anyone knows the easiest way to remove just the glass (I don't need to fix the screen) please share. It would be much appreciated. I'll also post a YouTube so others can see it because there isn't much info of this online.

Thanks guys!

Oh and to answer your question, you can get a digitizer on eBay for about $35.

A quick google search turned up this;

http://www.droidforums.net/forum/mot...bly-video.html

Cool thing that google.com, it finds almost anything!

edit: The video author says in the comments that the screen is adhered to the glass, and even tho he disassembles phones often for these videos, he would not want to try to replace the glass only.
