Cutting the old digitizer flex shouldn't cause any problems, lot's of tech actually do this when removing damaged digitizers (it's faster).

I would go through this guide completely to see if you didn't accidentally damage anything else along the way and correct as needed. Report back with any findings.

So what i found out was. I stripped some pins off of the touch FPC connector and therefore the touch, home button and lock button wouldn't work. I have attempted to replace it but I only have a 400 degree hot air gun. i dont have anything like a soldering iron. would you be able to help?


Replacing an FPC connector can't be done with a hot air gun as it puts out too much air and can damage the surrounding components. A hot air station is needed or a fine point, temperature controlled soldering station.

Depending on where you are located, you may have an experienced micro-solderer locally. If you can't find one locally, then consider mail-in repair. There are several reputable micro-solderers patrolling this forum. You can also click on my profile to learn more about my services, at the very least, it can serve as a data point.
