Doesn't the original glass and digitalizer come out with its biadesive?

First Timer here:

I've followed this and replaced the cracked screen (the clear bit).

But it still looks cracked; could it be that I have a cracked LCD thingy as well? (is that the black bit?).

If so what's the part number for that?

Why don't you just buy the screen which has the lcd and digitiser already assembled? That will save you a lot of hassle for only a few £'s more :)
