The guide was very useful. To avoid breaking the screen, you can use the spudger tool: gently insert next to a corner between the screen and the case; waiting for the glue to stretch and the glass to release in that spot, and gently work your way around until the entire screen lifts.
***IMPORTANT*** when you order a replacement screen, MAKE SURE IT HAS THE EEPROM CHIP ON THE FLAT RIBBON CABLE. The chip is a little black square next to the connector on the connector side of the cable, read by the Kindle upon reset. Graphics / greyscale will look weird without the chip (although text still is readable).
You can get proper greyscale with the chip from your old display:
- connect the old display (or cut-off cable end with the chip)
- reset Kindle (push and hold power key until it blinks, then hold 5 more seconds)
- the Kindle restarts and reads the EEPROM
- re-connect new display (the one without the chip)
You are good to go (at least until another reset - then the procedure needs to be repeated)

Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
