i was lucky, my replacement touchscreen came fitted with self adhesive to the screen, i just had to remove the foil from the screen and stick the screen to the frame
  • i was lucky, my replacement touchscreen came fitted with self adhesive to the screen, i just had to remove the foil from the screen and stick the screen to the frame

  • however should your replacement screen not have self adhesive on it, you´ll need double sided 3m sticky tape or touchscreen glue. however with the tape, you will need to cut and fit this around the frame of the phone. stick it all in place ensuring you dont cover any important buttons or functions and ensure you dont stick tape to the LCD screen.

  • once this is completed carefully using tweezers remove the white protection tape away from the tape to expose the sticky side for the touchscreen.
