Hello,

At Device Savers we only recommend doing a full assembly replacement on all iPhones. Doing the front glass is not recommend unless you are a manufacturer of screens as the process is extremely labor intense and you can run in to many obstacles if you are unfamiliar whit the process. To include damaging the LCD you are trying to save, ultimately costing you more time and money. I highly recommend recycling your LCD for cash and just purchasing a new full front assembly for your iPhone.

Like oldturkey03 said you should invest in a new one. iPhone 4 LCD Screen and Digitizer (GSM/AT&T)

"Unfortunately, the LCD panel is very securely glued to the glass and digitizer, with the entire assembly measuring 3.05mm thick. It appears that if you break the glass, you'll have to replace the iPhone 4's glass, digitizer, and LCD as a single assembly." from the ifixit teardown. Many have tried to just replace the glass, most have failed. So if your glass is broken, I recommend the exchange of the whole assembly. Do a search on here http://www.ifixit.com/Answers/Device/iPh... and you see what I mean. the instructions how to do it are here iPhone 4 Display Assembly Replacement and the part is available here iPhone 4 LCD Screen and Digitizer (GSM/AT&T) and I am sure many other places. Good Luck.

Yeah, I just tried separating the LCD/Digitizer from the Glass and it cracked in multiple places. It's best just to buy the two parts together to replace your broken glass.

It is possible depending on how damaged it gets. If it's cracked enough, be very careful of any water or rain. And I highly recommend using a decent replacement assembly. Installed a cheap one a customer brought in and the LCD is horrible. It's very dark, and can only be viewed from a straight on angle.
