iphone 2G, steel bezel glue
i had a invisible shield screen protector on my iphone, but lately its been coming off and looking orange. so i decided to take it off, along with the screen protector it took off a strip of black glue that was in the crack between the glass and the chrome bezel. now there is a gap there.
Im worried that the glass might start popping out now, anyone know what i can put in the crack? any ideas. its above the earpiece.

It is not glue! It is a rubber seal to keep dirt and moisture out. There is a lot more involved holding that display in place. It is not falling out. There are 6 clips and multiple cables holding it in place.

Back on topic,I had purchased a 2G with glass that was cracked not necessarily falling out and I got an invisibile shield too and installed and it completely filled the crack (deep scratch) and looks flawless. My issues has always been carefully removing the film if not messing with it at all. My advice.
