Yep,just try and peel as much of the screen off in one piece as you long as you don't apply pressure onto internal parts or go mad pulling bits off with a paintscraper or other oversized tool you should be fine. Put on a pair of goggles..those shards can fly! I've just taken 2 cracked screens off 4g's and I didn't use the heat gun at all. Most small pieces seem to stick to the adhesive and then you can peel that up. Just remember to take the metal "shield" off the top of the digitiser'll need it.

what shield are you talking about?


its about 1" long and 1/2" wide with a semicircle cutout and a hole in it. If you look at the guides you'll see it on the underside of the glass/digitiser at the upper end.
