Need to fix the outer glass?

Okay I found this link online and the glass looks a little different. Link>link .

I need to just replace the outside glass, will this video be okay to follow to get the job done?

Here are some links that I found what appears to be the glass that I need.

Link #1 I think this is the ticket that I need, and I don't know if all come with a tool set, but this one shows it does. I think my cheapest choice is this one.

Link #2

Link #3 what is your opinion as to which one I need?

Update (08/19/2017)

Link #1 got cut off in the original link

Please tell me what you think, I only need the outside glass till attempt to do this, very good at fixing things, replaced and fixed a 55" Samsung tv with help. lol. I was thinking about the set with the LCD and tools, but then I only need the outside screen, thanks for your help.

I can't see the video mentioned to give an opinion if it would suffice in helping you do the job but I would always recommend getting the LCD along with the outside glass... the outside glass has a digitizer built into it and when disassembling it's a possibility you could damage the LCD, so to have it handy would be nice and if you don't damage the LCD then you could always put on the digitizer and save the LCD for future repair if needed it looks cheap enough to have it as a spare part

yes, I was thinking in that manner too, to get the LCD, just in case. I could sell it if someone needed just that, thank you. I am really interested in getting the one with the proper tools. I have a 56 set tech screwdriver set, that should have the 00 screwdrivers that I am going to need I think somewhere along the line. thank you, I will be internally grateful as I am to any forum that helps people out.

John W (taylor1277) on this model the digitizer (touchscreen) is easily replaced by itself. You should purchase that you feel comfortable repairing. Study the guides ahead of time and see if there are any areas that you'd be concerned about This is not a terribly complicated repair.

it doesn't seem that hard of a task to accomplish, I am just worried about cutting too far into the phone. I seen one video where they use a hairdryer to loosen the adhesive. I will try that. that is my main concern. I am going to get the LCD too. Just in case
