I am replacing the screen and digitizer on the iphone 3g for a friend who dropped and badly crack the screen on his.I have taken it all apart to find the new screen isnt sticky and wont stick to the framework the old screen left behind.Anyone now what adhesive to use as i would think it would need to be pretty strong.

I know there's a special thing you have to use but don't remember what it is. cpjr would know as I think he mentioned it before... When I was returning mine I put a dab of some type of super glue just to hold it solid in place so it couldn't be seen, but I don't think that's a good permanent solution nor something that is recommended.Respect your elders.

^I'd suggest you ask cpjr or find a website that sells the tools to take it apart; they may have it.Respect your elders.

Adhesive Strips for iPhone 3G Digitizer and Front Glass
Stuff like superglue is a NO NO, the vapors the glue gives off will fog the glass and damage the LCD.
