Talking Replaced Dell Streak Screen tonight.

My cousin and I went through the process of replacing the screen on his Streak tonight, the screen was so bad that it was blurry/shaky on one side and the other side was slowly being blacked out. In the end everything worked out perfectly, and my cousin is back to being one proud father, I mean streak owner.

2 Observations:
- The Phone is really only held together by Glue and Pressure. C'mon Dell...

Shoutouts:
- iFixit your awesome

- ulfses your "Helpful Links/Tips" were in short, a Gold Mine.

- eBay seller big_is your awesome as well, the part (Glass + LCD) did not take 2 months to get here like some other Hong Kong sellers, it was here in a week! (We're in Los Angeles, CA)

Advice:
- iFixit didn't include this but the front of the screen (Gorilla Glass + LCD) literally detaches from the rest of the phone once the ribbons are unclipped, there is SO MUCH GLUE that you wouldn't realize it but it does. Also we used a box cutter to remove the Gorilla Glass from the LCD first, for us it was like slicing cake because we were merely slicing the glue that held it together on the edges. Once the Glass was off, removing the LCD from the phone was easy.

Hope this helps!

When you placed the new LCD in the phone with the old Gorilla Glass, did you glue the 2 back together?
If so, what glue product did you use?
