just follow the usual procedure for removing the digitiser.. I don't tend to use the hot gun but each to their own. I've not managed to break a digitiser yet... just go slowly and prise all sides up a little at a time.

iPhone 3G Front Panel Replacement er that's the one I meant. silly me thought that as Jared has been here a few times already he knew what I meant... but forgot others following this might not be so savvy. nice one mayer!


I knew what you meant polly ;) Ive done it many times before but always while removing broken ones. I've never had to worry about damaging it and I dont know how I would do it without a heat gun??
