I followed the steps and removed cracked LCD. upon reassemly of parts after connecting replacement LCD, I found it was very difficult to connect orange ribbon back to camera body because not enough room to work with and cable is too thin and flexible. So it is better to start from Step 7 after found out someone posted the method without detaching from camera body.

Btw, I reassembled with new LCD but camera wont turn on the LCD panel at all. Changed it back to old one, cracked but was still working, but it wont come up either. So I am stuck to know what could have gone wrong... :(
