Hi!

Great disassemble guide!

I have a BLU Studio Energy 2, with the screen not working (blacked-out) but the touch screen is working.

I already purchased a new original LCD and Touch Screen set. Could You make a disassemble for this phone?

Thank You very much!

This guide is incomplete and will not show you how to remove your screen. It will show you how to disassemble your phone and feel like a fool.
