With a hair dryer or heat gun warm the glass, at first for about 2-3 minutes. Use a thin plastic tool, like a plastic pick and start the separation from the underside. Do this very slow and periodically warm the glass!

  • At the beginning you have to separate the touch screen glass from the main frame.

2-3 minutes are not enough. I did it for 4-5 and I destroyed the LCD screen. It is best to apply heat for as long as is necessary for the glue to melted completely.

Now is time to test the phone. If the LCD is OK you can order only a touch screen, if no, then you need display assembly - touch screen & LCD With a plastic pick gently scrape the glue.

  • With a cloth and isopropyl alcohol clean the LCD.

  • Don't use a lot of alcohol. if the liquid passes behind the LCD, will appear spots that you can't remove.

On the new touch screen or on the main frame put adhesive sticker 3mm. Be careful not to cover the the places for the camera, sensor, earpiece, etc. Lift the logic board a little bit, so that the touch screen flex cable can pass.

  • It's easier if you can order the touch screen together with adhesive which is cut off specifically for model.
