Ok Well I ordered the red housing 4 the iphone 3G last week I was so excited when i got it i stared working on it immeadtly i ran in my room got my suction cup and started well i followed the tut. It worked great! Untill i had to put it back together I first could not get the stock silver peice to go around strait and now my phone is a little open on the top right corner. I then could not get the camera in correctly. So I plugged it in after about 7 hrs i got it done then i noticed my home botton did not work so i took apart my screen well PDA parts tut. it says take your case opener tool just below the withe (lcd) well i did pulled up and CRACK there goes my lcd so i said WTF and i put it back together cause i did not wanna break anyhting more so really i dont have any clue what to do from this point on. I shoulda sent it to a professinal. Can anyone fix this I really dont have anymoney bu tif you could fix it all im sure we can work something out.

Dude, the video that this company has circulated is designed to do two things only: 1- get their name out so you automatically go to them for parts you need. 2- get you to break your LCD and buy a replacement from them.
Good instructions for iPhone repair can be found at ifixit.com. where you decide to buy your parts (I like eBay myself) is up to you.
I really think there should be some kind of lawsuit over what they are doing. Once you compare valid repair instructions against the video you'll understand. Plus it's really scummy and immoral and outright ****** to do that to honest people just trying to fix their devices on their own.
