The gorilla glass is pinned to the case. You must take a slotted screwdriver  to go around the case and separate the gorilla glass from the case. In some instances the gorilla glass may seperate from the LCD fairly easily, or it maybe hard to release.

  • (Don't feel sorry for the broken display, it doesn't deserve to be treated gently..)

You do not neet to detach the Gorilla glass from the LCD unit. Together they come off more easily. Your new replacement unit includes the Gorilla glass as well.

Lift the new display out of the case. You should fold the LCD ribbon cable to do this. Lift the new display out of the case. You should fold the LCD ribbon cable to do this. Lift the new display out of the case. You should fold the LCD ribbon cable to do this.

Really good, the display is out of the case. Remember the lifted display is no longer for use. For example, i brought the touchscreen ribbon cable even though i was careful.

Insert the brand new display! Remind, you must do step 3 to 2 in reversed direction. The hardest part for me was to fold the LCD ribbon cable of the new display, but don't be shy, do it!

Perfect, it's done! Don't be alarmed if the screen is black when you re-start your phone for the first time and the buttons are only glowing. This may happen, but removing and reinserting the battery should restart it and cause it to function properly!
