    ^Thats for a 3g.....he asked for a 2g.

    And on a 2g you CANT replace just the glass. The glass/digitizer and LCD are all fused together as 1 part and must be replaced as 1 part. Trying to seperate them will break them.

    Default Yes you can...
    I have replaced over 40 2G screens by seperating the glass from the digitizer... it's tedious but possible.

    i think the tape is crap. there is adhesive all around the frame and digitizer on the 3g. this tape only goes around the top and bottom. i was thinking about trying something different on the next one i repair. that way no dust can get into the phone.

    I can imagine its pretty difficult but I would love to give this a try. How do you fuse it back together once apart?
