Hey guys, I'm attempting to replace my digitizer for the second time after my first attempt ended up with a digitizer which was a distinctly different shape than the original and therefore looks terrible! Anyhow I'm looking for a decent adhesive to keep it in place. Would pretty much anything do or does anyone have a preference?

Cheers!

Here is the stuff I used, working great so far.. Not sure where you could get it (maybe frys or something) (I grabbed some from work).. its thin, double sided, super sticky once it sets, and made by 3M.. I just cut it into very thin strips using a ruler and exacto blade.. If you have trouble finding some, I have enough leftover that I could mail you to get the job done..

if you cant find it locally try amazon or:

http://cgi.ebay.com/2mm-3M-Adhesive-...item4aa6a4b2fa

another thing, something that is probably more "locally available" would be to buy the 3M digitizer tape for an iphone, and cut it up into the 4 strips you'll need

I used some of the loctite superglue gel. Very very thin layer of it and it worked great, I didn't like how the original digitizer sat flush with the frame of the phone, after using the superglue the digitizer is slightly below the frame so it the phone was dropped face down the frame would hit the ground first hopefully saving the screen

I ended up going with this:

I made sure it wasn't the foam kind and it's double sided so should hopefully do the job nicely. Fingers crossed

Yeah I'm going with a combo of the tape and superglue, just because I don't trust myself to be delicate with superglue down the sides

I'll have to post some pics of the before and after, just to give a sense of how crap the first replacement was. It's so poor I'm using a full body case to keep the digitizer held in! It also lacks the bottom buttons and is the incorrect size (Around 1cm in total, top and bottom) compared to the original digitizer. It's gonna be a nice day when it's back to tip top condition

Anyone happen to know where I can pick up the thick foamy type adhesive? Some of it is torn around edges & want to fill in the gaps with something better than 4 layers of the thin 3m stuff. I might try tiny strips of electrical tape in those spots, but would rather proper real thing.
