It took me 3 hours for first time since I didn't know procedure.

I've followed youtube video for disassembly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lt9XNnjAcBc).

You have to be very careful and use non-metal tools so you don't damage case.

It's not so scary with keypad sensors on bottom (just at the 85% of disassembly be very careful).

I had bad luck and bought faulty display with bad touch (left side of display was always active, numbers are being dialed by self). I just return back and got a new one.

Don't glue anything or take off screen protect until you try if everything is OK.

*See image if you want to know where you need to use glue.

Great thread guys!

I have a cracked screen so I ordered the new screen + digitizer from repairsuniverse. It got here to Canada pretty quick. I quickly read down through the posts and gave it a shot. Unfortunately I didn't really pay close enough attention to the posts on removing the screen down around the buttons and ended up cutting off the cable ribbons.

I've got a new piece ordered now from flexqueen. My repair just got that much more complicated!

So a lesson learned to anyone else attempting this. Be extremely careful around the buttons. Glued to the screen itself are very delicate sensors that are connected to the main body by very small and fragile cable ribbons.

Start removing the screen on one side at the middle of the body. Go up from there and then down around to the other side. Save the area of the screen next to the buttons for last. When you get to them, do not pry under the screen very far to loosen the glue or you may cut the ribbons like I did. A hairdryer or heatgun for that part of the screen may help loosen the glue that keeps the sensors attached to the screen.

The piece I now have to replace sort of wraps around the bottom of the frame and then the home button gets reattached over it. Promises to be complicated. I'm not looking forward to this.

Unhappy
Recap: Screen broke, and in taking off the old screen I cut the cable ribbons on the back and menu buttons.

Well I finally have my new screen replaced as well as the circuits for the home, menu and back keys. The good news is the screen replacement turned out great! The bad news, is that none of the buttons work. I must have screwed something up there.

Now I'm pretty friggin frustrated. After shelling out close to $200 for parts, I'll just have to trash the phone and look for a whole new one. No one around these parts does repairs on these new phones.... well one group does but they tell me they haven't actually worked on a new Samsung droid before so I'd end up paying them twice as much and they still wouldn't know what they are doing either.
