Exactly what I needed! Step by step detailed instructions along with what tools I would need. Heating it up took longer than expected & it took me longer than 30 min, but I actually set aside 2 hours to replace my screen. Woohoo I finally I have a new screen & I did it all on my own...well with the amazing help from ZFix ;D
