Yeah but like I said I need one with all screw lengths if possible

As far as I know, there is no one guide that shows all the screw lengths. Maybe someone else here can chime in. Otherwise, go through the guides as you need them. If you are only swapping a logic board from one good housing to another, that should be pretty straight forward. If you are building up a blank housing from scratch, start with the button flexes and mark the screws before you move them. If you have a jumble of parts and screws, then go through the guides.

Its all good I just realised if I follow the housing replacement it has all the screws so thank you very much

Oh my god. I wanted to do this to. But I hate to break it to you: IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

save up money, and buy a new one.

The components are retail-priced, so if you bought all the components, it would cost you more than just buying one. And touch id won't work, until someone finds a way to re-pair it.

Yeah but I bought a 32 gb motherboard

And with all parts totals to only about £70-£80 so I'm going to continue trying

then you better assemble it right. You must also get a 3rd party rear chassis without the imei of your phone etched into it, and then etch it in yourself.

then you must put in all the adhesives apple uses (which can be very hard to come by), you must apply threadlocker to some (but not all) the screws, then you must put the thing together. THEN you must go to apple and have them service the touch id module, crossing your fingers you did a %#*@ good job putting this all together, so they wont spite you for a 3rd party repair. IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!! You'll waste too much of you're valuable time with this.
