Thanks for confirming

I didn't end up doing it correctly - it didn't work.

I think the mistake I made was not heating the old flex cable off the connector. I didn't follow instructions correctly and I pulled it off. I was able to heat the leftover connectors off but after soldering the new flex onto the board and sealing up it didnt work - screen still unresponsive :-(

It was my first attempt at replacing a screen (and I don't have any experience) so I'm not too bummed.

I just ordered a complete LCD and digitizer instead :-)

Failed miserably... Soldering iron not adapted. Might want to emphasise that is critical. At least I tried...
