Removed my screen today, now waiting for new arriving from Hong Kong. I took couple of photos after the screen was removed. You can see the two sensors at the bottom where I had to be very careful when removing screen. It felt like they would rip apart anytime. My luck was that the glue used was very soft and by prying very slowly the screen removed easily. Took about 30min to remove but would have gone faster if my screen wouldn't been shattered near home button. Little glass and amoled pieces are everywhere. I recommend to keep safety glasses on when removing screen because it shatters easily and pieces fly long way. My hand is now like a disco ball. Tools used are seen on the photos. I also used a little kitchen knife but not much so I didn't include it in the photo. There are still little pieces of glass which I have to remove before applying new screen. Gotta figure out how to remove those.

New screen arrived. Now to install it. I will post some photos before install and after. Btw. New screen has newer component than old one. New screens rev. is 7.7 and old one is 7.6. Maybe not a big difference in use but we'll see.

Okay so screen install was a success, kind of... I used some double sided carpet tape to glue screen on chassis. There was some glue already on the new screen so I used tape only on corners. Hence there is no photo where you could see where I placed tape bits. I should have looked the new screen better because it didn't have the speaker shield with it. Now my phone does not have that shield :S There's a photo about that. Second weird thing is that it looks like the screen is misaligned to the digitizer. You can see this copper colored edge on the top edge of screen. There's photo about that also. Takes some time to be used to that :S Installed the screen and packed all up. Then I was afraid that my install was not successfull because phone wouldn't boot. My luck was that battery was dead so plugged phone to wall and screen came alive with battery loading logo. Don't know yet that is the screen misaligned. Have to wait it charge full and boot up. Then look some photos in gallery and compare them to photos on computer. I hope that there's no problem. I would hate send it back to hong kong. So here are the photos I mentioned about.

PS. Maybe the rev. difference mentioned earlier is that copper edge :P

Had to remove new screen because it was faulty. I was missing like ~10 or more pixel lines on bottom. I'm sending package back to Hong Kong tomorrow. About two weeks and I should have new screen again. I also have to come up with a different way to attach screen to chassis. Tape did not hold screen well. It was too easy to remove screen this time :P

maybe try using a glue gun?

you only need just a very thin layer, not a full drop

if you made a mistake, just wait for it to cool down, then it peels of easy and leaves no residue when cold

I think that it's pretty much impossible to change only the glass. Display is glued rock hard to the glass. Removing glass would tear the super thin amoled display. Sorry m8

I had the same problem. Broken glas and ok amoled. Impossible to change only the glas. The other problem. Glas and amoled is not sold separatly, you have to buy both for 99$.

The perfect glue for the jobb is this one. (see picture)
It melt around 120 celsius. Have a rubbery feeling and fill out if its uneven under the screen. I used the backend of a matchstick to apply it. After about 14 days, my screen stil sitt perfectly in place.
