Display replacement : doesnt fit into the chasis
I had an iphone 5 with a cracked display after falling down.
I tried to replace the display as suggested in many youtube videos. Finally, I was about to close the display, i.e. to put the down part into the chasis (where the two opening screws are), when I noticed, that the display doesnt fit at all, because the chassis was bent, on the place the iPhone hit the ground. So, I had to take off the display several times, and put it back, after trying to bend a little the chassis, so that the display can fit. Maybe 5-10 times. After it I tried to file the chassis, it still didnt fit enough. Than I followed the glory idea of filing the display itself (like plastic is easily filed) until only after a milimeter I saw the metal isolation plate. Well, at the end the display didnt work, nor it fitted into the chasis. I put the cracked display back and I ordered a new display...
So, what could I have done better ?
Is this a good question?
