    Reason I asked is 2g is very very hard to do without breaking the LCD. 3g and 3gs are at least possible, but it's still not just a simple swap. You have to pull the screen, be very careful with the connectors and flex cables, especially number 3. Then you remove the LCD. The hardest part is getting the digitizer off the frame, as it is attached with adhesive. There are tons of YouTube videos on this.

    You can also buy the assembly, which will make the process much easier

    or send it to someone on the forum for repair

    Yea I have watched a vid on it it seems simple enough, but I am correct in saying that I just need to buy the digitizer?

    Ah I see your edit idk tho thats a big increase in price. Thank you for your help.

    You will also need the adhesive strips if the digitizer doesn't come with them

    make sure you are comfortable doing this repair as the tiniest mistake could get real expensive
