Unresponsive display, 3D touch, Front camera flex

I was on iOS 11 when my screen got cracked. I bought a new one, and when I was changing the LCD i accidently broke the front camera flex. I bought a new one and installed everything. The phone took forever to boot and when the phone finaly boots up the screen is unresponsive. I can open up application but it takes everything from 5 to 10 sek to open them. 3D touch isn't working as well. I've readed that this is a commin issue with ios 11 on phones with aftermarket lcd, but do the 11.0.3 update solve this problem? RIght now im on 10.3.3 and it works very fine.

So, can I update to 11.0.3 or do I loose the touch again? What about the front camera flex? Will this be a issue to because it isn't original?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

If I'm not mistaken, you have also been contributing on the various iOS 11 threads.

Essentially, iOS 11, prior to version 11.0.3 did not work well with certain aftermarket screens. You can check what I wrote here (After update to iOS 11 Touchscreen unresponsive).

There are also numerous reports of various issues and lags that cannot be attributed to those same aftermarket screens. I believe this is just an issue with iOS 11 in general, it seems like it was problematic from the start. Personally, I would wait until at least 11.1 before updating unless you absolutely need the new features. I would also save a signed blob of my iOS 10.3.3 prior to doing the update so you can always downgrade. Check my profile (or the previously linked answer) for more details.

Thanks for your answer, and yes.. I post in many threads :P already saved my blobs but for now it's impossible to downgrade. Need to be jailbroken from what I've readed.

According to this site, iOS 10.3.3 is still signed by Apple for the iPhone 6S. Plus, if you save a signed blob, then you can downgrade regardless of Apple signing the version or not.

I have 7 plus and Apple doesn't sign 10.3.3 for the 7 plus. And to downgrade with futurerestore you need to be jailbroken - and the 10.3.3 isn't jailbroken or at least released as far as I know.

D'oh!

I didn't catch that. You're right, no signing for the iPhone 7.
