If you wan't my advice just send it to HTC, or any oficial repair store.
I've tried to change that same part on the diamond and everthing was fine till i discover that the screen it's glued to the digitizer and you can´t separet then whithout breaking the screen.

Then you just have to go and buy another screen, that's the expensive part

Send it to an oficial store, keep the waranty.It's about the same price you pay for only the screen.

Sorry my bad english.Out of practice...

Mine was cracked the same way, but the queastion is..

If it's really glued to the digitez why would they sell it seperately?

In fact, I tried to remove a small little piece of cracked glace from my touchscreen and I guess it was glued..

But I still want to believe that we can fix it.. what happened at ur end? have you found anything?

Thanks to all

I have two options:

1. Repair on the official service of HTC, here in my country. About 260 (370 $)

2. Change the display, but would need the two screens together, and I can't find anywhere (only the external display). Apparently separating and uniting the two screens is quite difficult. So, I look somewhere to buy the two together

Any idea?

If you not had the phone long get insurance on the phone and give it a week or two then phone them. And tell them get it done that way

hey guys I have the same problem. If you get a video tutorial on how to replace please post it!

here is my small contribution: if you have a local Chinatown, they might replace/repair the HD2. I went to the Chinatown in my native country and a couple of stores said that if I got the parts they would fix it. I was there for a short time so I couldn't get the parts.

I'll give it a try in France in a couple of weeks and give you the results

Have you not got insurance to get it fixed or replaced saves hassle looks like a bitch of a device to take apart.

Good luck.

you're 6'4" at waist height?
