Answer to: Digitizer freaks out when laid flat on the frameI can confirm that transferring the black "nylon" tape from original digitizer to the new solves the issue 100% Not sure why these aren't coming out of china with the tape already on it. Just being cheap I suppose. Big thanks to Alex Nguyen for the solution. It has been driving me nuts. I've done about 60 mini's at this point (with no tape). Hope there aren't problems.
Answer to: Does the new iPad Mini with Retina display use the same glass?I am a shop in Los Angeles and took one apart today. It is 100% a different glass. Same size and same ic chip, but the glass has a purple hue to it. Very disappointing cause now we have yet another part to take a year to come down in price. Update: By sight it is noticeable, instantly. I am thinking that the purple hue increases the contrast. Did Apple really add a "retina" display or is just tricking us with this tinted glass...hmmmmmm??? The customer I had was happy with the repair and didn't mind the "normal" glass. I would think that taking it to apple for any warranty the 'genius' would notice, but be all know how un-genius they can be.
