Repair 3G glass?
Do I JUST need the glass panel to replace a broken glass panel, or would it make it easier to get a glass+digitizer? Also, how "necessary" is the adhesive they sell?

You HAVE to buy the glass/digitizer combo part. The digitizer is a very thin, very fragile piece of glass that is impossible to separate from the glass front.
You can get the part off ebay for around $30.
And yes, you need the adhesive made for it...which can be found for around $5.

Thanks, this is the one I'm probably gonna buy cause it's OEM and US seller.

Looks perfect to me. Fairly easy to swap out...just take your time, dont guess and be careful. You will be working with some fragile parts.

I hope it's easy. iFixIt has the part for sale at $70, I think, and they have the "swap difficulty" as "Difficult." But I'll trust an experienced iPhone opener like you =]
