Now how to fix it

Hi!

Depends on how your new screen came in. Some of them do not have the frame where it fits in, so you need to transfer the frame from the old one.

It’s glued, so you need to heat it to detach the screen from the frame and need to glue it to the new screen. Then follow the guide in reverse order to reassemble it.

Note: The silver plate is attached to the frame, be carefull for it and also for the small parts on it.

Hi! This is regarding the Xiaomi Mi 2 only. Not sure if it’s applicable for the 2S. This device used in this guide is Mi 2.
