I dont remember but i think I took off upper black shield, you know the one that protects all ribbons on top( lcd, digitizer, facing camera, power button and all that stuff). After that i took apart like 10 more iphones and all of them were fine ;/

Not always a screen replacement alot of the times puts them in a restore mode.

It's not hard to damage the ribbons on a 3G/3GS but I've never taken apart my i4 so I wouldn't know the layout of it much.
But, if it went into restore mode after taking off the back cover, then go back and see if any connectors aren't correctly plugged in, and if they are then just do a restore.
