    Question iPhone 4 LCD and Home button replacement
    I cracked my screen on my iPhone 4 last week and decided to use it as an opportunity to get a color conversion kit, it came with a matching home buton, but not a new flex cable. Can I attach the one already in my phone to the new home button? Will I need additional adhesive, and if so what kind? Thanks!

    All you have to do is gently peel of the old white/black one and attach the new colored one in its place.

    Thanks! I just wanted to be sure before I got to work and got that far only to realize I would have to do it again for the home button.

    Just finished the replacement! Everything went smoothly -- including the home button. The only thing is that I just realized that the earpiece doesn't have the mesh cover, is this piece unnecessary or should I find a replacement one online?

    The old earpiece mesh can simply be transferred to new screen, it is held in place with double side adhesive. Also, you often need to transfer the small clear plastic front camera stabilization ring.
