3rd Gen iPad with the Digitizer and LCD Bonded
Anybody else encountered an iPad Retina with the LCD bonded to the digitizer and front glass? I have a model A1416 64GB that got cracked. The LCD seems fine so I ordered a front glass assembly. Started the repair only to find the entire surface of the glass is bonded to the LCD with soft, transparent, very sticky goo.
I guess I'll try to get all the glass shards off the LCD as I have little to lose. If I fail, or if I wind up damaging the LCD I'll be no worse off. I mean, either way I would need to replace the LCD, so I might as well try.
Any advice? Is it better to free all four corners, remove the screws and then try to get things out in one piece or work on the LCD in place?
Is there a repair guide, perhaps for an older iPhone or iPod Touch that might be instructive?
Is this a good question?
