It looks like you separated the digitizer from the LCD. On the iPhone 5, and most iPhones for that matter, the LCD and Digitizer are fused (glued) together and come off the phone in one piece.

Go back through this guide to see how it should have been removed.

You will need to order a new screen assembly to repair your phone, you can order one here.

Given that you applied quite a bit of force to your phone, I am also concerned that you may have damaged the logic board. You should carefully inspect the logic board for signs of Pry Damage (you can google it) and damaged connectors .

ohhh but if the lcd and digitallizer are fused by glue can i just replace the rippon cable and glue then, if not i may just buy a new iphone as they go for 100 bucks now days thank you very much


No, unfortunately you can't just "re-glue" the two pieces together. First of all you need optical glue (LOCA) and second of all, you did extensive damage to the screen. I agree, an iPhone 5 is not expensive these days but then again, neither are replacement screens.
