Title:

Can I test a screen before completely installing it?

Text:

So I’m pretty sure I know the answer to this - but can I test out the screen replacement without hooking up the camera, home button, etc?  Can I just attach the three cables to the phone to make sure the screen works, or would it brick the phone?
