Dan, where did you buy the digitizer from? I'm looking for a trusted OEM distributor.


Bought the digitizer from China on Ebay (cui1873), followed this video, and BAM! I have a fully functioning tablet again. This video is awesome and the parts came in as described.

To change the digitizer, it is essential to remove all or just the cover and the battery!

Never put a case on my 10.1 and I use it at work alot. Screen is mint because ive always had a protector on it but the back panel and grey trim is all gashed and scratched up. Anyone know where I can buy new back cover and trim for the 10.1?
