Answer to: Why do the display asmbly rplcements look different from the original?There is a black-and-silver molded plastic frame to remove (see my photo here http://i1273.photobucket.com/albums/y415...). The back of the digitizer is attached to the black plastic with double-sided adhesive tape that is rather strong. You can lever them apart and be left with the empty black-and-silver plastic frame, but the digitizer is almost certain to break. So you'd only want to do this if your digitizer is already a write-off. You'd also need to plan to either glue your new digitizer to the frame (which might prevent any future digitizer replacement, or have new double-sided tape ready to apply. Otherwise, your digitizer will only be attached to the assembly via its cables, and they are certainly not fit for that kind of structural job. My digitizer+screen shipped from China does fit the frame, however. Hope that helps!
