iPhone 3GS digitizer replacement

by nathandelgadillo

My Problem

The phone slipped out of my younger brothers hand. The result was a shattered digitizer.

My Fix

After heating up the adhesive, it's a little tricky getting I between the broken digitizer and the midframe. Also, plugging the cables back in was a little bit of a hassle. Other than those issues, this repair was a snap!

My Advice

If you are using a hair dryer instead of a heat gun, then you may want to try using it on high.
