Stentoumis Christos, could you please post a link on where you got just the cable from? The very first thing I would look at, is this guide. iPhone 5 Front Panel Replacement Then it depends on what the connector of the cable looks like.

That is an excellent find:-) from what the end looks like, it appears to be strict pressure fitting connector. Any chance you can take a close up picture of your LCD where the cable joins the screen?

Please let me know if just heating will separate LCD from digitizer

the process to replace that cable is extremely difficult and the equipment and solvents required are expensive too (above the $800 Range). you must first separate the front glass from the LCD\Digitizer then de-solder the digitizer cable, then separate the digi and lcd. after that remove the epoxy holding the cable to the lcd then de-solder that, when that's done you will need optically clear adhesive to put everything back together.
