You need professional tools and skills to "refurbish" an iPhone 4/4S screen and's totally not worth it seeing the price of the pre-assembled screen is $35 for the better quality that iFixit sells here with a lifetime warranty. There are cheaper options but the screens will have a much higher rate of failure even out of the box, and be more fragile.

Replace it with a new assembly. That is never going to function again. They are $20-$30 for a replacement.

Why is it never going to function again? Thanks


It'll never work again because the LCD was destroyed when you seperated it from the assembly and the LCD connector is also missing.

From what I've heard, it's impossible to successfully separate that model, of that color. Fortunately, Brian is right. A new assembly is still very cheap, as opposed to the 5 series parts, which are up 20%
