    Hi! I cannot find a way to insert the plastic opening tool. Any suggestions on how I can create a gap to start. Everything seems quit rigid.

    Also, where will I find your reply.

    Hi Lars, you might want to use a suction handle to lift the display and create a small gap to insert the plastic tool. If you don’t have a suction handle you can “build” a handle with tape that you stick onto the display in a shape similar to this —> __∏__ (also you may want to edit your post and remove your email address ;) )

  3. Don't open the phone all the way, yet. The cable for the standby and volume buttons is still connected to the back cover. Swing open the phone backwards.

Any advice which adhesive to use? I’ve seen a russian replacement video, it looked like the guy was using some kind of silicone.

Assuming I purchase a screen off of ebay, and replace it using this method, will the touch id still work?
