Guides I've Contributed To
- The simplest way to repair the glass is to buy the digitizer+frame assembly. Search "Nokia Lumia 520 digitizer with frame" on the eBay. You can get it from ~20$. You can then follow this guide.
- If you use iOS 6 try to set the correct time in settings and reboot before inserting SIM card. Let me know if this works please
- I think the searching thing is a bug in iOS 6 ! Try to set the correct date/hour before insterting the SIM card !
- Can you take a picture of it? Sometimes a small gold piece falls apart from the EMI shield : Not replacing it right will cause bad wifi reception
- Maybe your cellular antenna is not perfectly connected. You can try to disconnect and reconnect it : it's the small connector on a black cable near the battery connector.

- The screen are the same, wathever the memory size. Screen are different only between models, from top to bottom iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 CDMA and iPhone 4 GSM : http://blog.webtito.be/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/iPhone-Display-Assemblies.jpg
- I think you broke the very fagrile glass that holds the LCD. When it breaks the electrical traces break and the screen generally looses entire columns of pixels. You will have to replace the front panel : - Part: - Guide : iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Panel Replacement
- Usually I don't remove the last six screws that hold the screen. I just loosen up them a bit. You might have to shake a bit when replacing the new screen but this saves the frustration of putting back those screws with these tiny rings.
This screw is supposed to tie into a very small nut that sits under a small u-shaped tab in the EMI shield that is fixed to the PCB. Maybe that nut has moved or got lost. I recommend you to lift that small tab to find it because if loose it could create a short-circuit.
But that screw/nut is absolutely not essential to the LCD. It should work without it.
Be carefull of a very small component soldered near the yellow connector. It can pop off and make your front camera irresponsive.
