    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.

    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 =]
