    To be honest I am trying to replicate the process that we've all seen in those videos. I didn't order my adhesive from China though. I'm using a US brand, so maybe that's why? Basically I'm removing the glass (duh), cleaning off the screen (double duh), removing the backlight, then tossing it into my mold (which sucks because without the backlight it seems to be sunk in slightly, remedied by putting a thin piece of cardboard behind it), adding glue and then doing the "gravity" trick to get the glue to spread as evenly as possible. I try not to have to touch it to make it spread so I'm putting a line of glue in the middle of the LCD.

    Something that helps is to actually place the glue in an x like this.there are much fewer bubbles and easier to soread the liquid

    Well I've busted my iphone 5 glass. Are any of you doing glass only repairs and if so can you PM with a price and procedure. I'm located in Atlanta if that matters. Going to go in tomorrow and see if Apple will have any mercy but I doubt that.

    Has anyone tried to repair an HTC One yet? Heard its very difficult and very likely that the plastic frame will break.

    I would do it for myself, but I wouldn't do it for a customer. We tried to do some no matter how consistent you are, the result isn't so consistant

    Does anyone here refurbish these for a cost? I have a store and we have a couple broken 5 displays (working LCD) that I'd like to have new glass put on. Would gladly pay to have someone do them, we just don't have the time in here for it.

    Yeah, I've tried. About a month ago, he said he would refurbish them but I've tried contacting him several times since then with no answer.

    But hey at least it appears a lot of us shops are really busy, which is a great thing!

    Hey guys just registered for this thread . just wondering if anybody has tried the OCA strips in combination with a vacuum chamber I'm thinking about purchasing a chamber and setting up a hot plate in the chamber . placing the screen on the hotplate and pulling a very high vacuum 500 microns. Hopefully this combination would remove any air bubbles under the display . what do you think?

    Have you guys tried taking apart the new iphone 5s or the 5c?

    Hoping that one of these phones will use the same glass/lcd assembly as the iphone 5

    From what I've seen on ifixit, it looks like that they use the same glass/lcd assembly but have different plastic frames and different camera flexes, it would be great if this were true and it would save on the cost of having to always have 2 different types of glass/lcd assemblies for each iphone 5,5s,5c. Would be great if we could just have a glass/lcd assembly and just be able to place a new frame for each of the iphone 5 repairs

    I believe the flex connectors are completely different from the 5 to the 5s/c.

    Yep.. unfortunately they are totally different connectors. I believe they are the same screens just different connectors.

    I was really hoping they would all be the same (5, 5C and 5S)

    I popped my 5S open last night and was going to make a post because Cowboy answered it before I could.

    Dang that sucks. From what I can tell, the iphone 5s and 5c have the same digitzer/lcd connectors, the only thing different is the camera flex, right?

    I think all 3 are different. Heard from a friend the pins are different between the 5s and 5c. Haven't officially verified yet.

    I don't have a 5c or I'd open up and find out for sure. They look very similar but my guess with it being apple the pins are different
