    • Let's test the new spare part.

    • First connect the Display assembly, grab the phone comfortably and then put the battery.

    • Warm the touchscreen to make adhesive tape soft. You can use a hair dryer.

      • If the glass is cracked, put the tape in order not to scatter pieces.

    • Use the front camera hole to separate the glass at the corner.

    • Continue with separation with plastic tools, from up to down.

    • Gently separate the menu buttons flex cable from the touchscreen.

    • If the display is left on the frame, use the same techniques to remove it.

    • Clean the frame from the remnants of tape and install new.

    • Be careful with the menu buttons and the holes for the camera and the light sensor, don't cover them.

    • Will be easier if you use adhesive, ready for the model.

    • Install the new display assembly and start with reassembling.

    • That's all.

Followed the VDO exactly and managed to fix the screen. Getting the right glue for the screen delivered took the longest time.
