So I managed to replace my screen and came across a few things that might help others. I wasn’t able to open the screen from the bottom so I tried the side. In the process of doing this I pulled the screen from the display and broke parts of it. This wasn’t a problem because I was replacing the display+frame. After a few times of opening and closing the phone I have realized that it is a lot easyer to open the phone by pushing the screen out from inside of the sim slot. This could probably damage the sim slot but that is a lot less likely than breaking the screen, at least if you are unexperienced. A friend of mine did damage the back cover by doing this with a metal screwdriver so I would advise a plastic spudger. Also, my buttons ended up acting funny because I replaced the tape with electrical tape, It worked fine after I salvaged some of the old tape. Maybe something other than electrical tape is better.
Will not using adhesive when putting in a new battery be a problem. There is adhesive on my new assembly but I’d like to be able to easely replace my battery in the future. There is adhesive on the new frame with a protective layer you are supposed to peel off, is it ok if you leave that there? Won’t this cause thermal problems? Also, what is the point of removing the battery from the original phone. If you need to get a new battery anyway this shouldn’t be needed right? I mean, isn’t it a little bit stupid to bend a battery if you don’t need to, it is always nice to try to prevent battery fires wherever possible right?
