    I'm gonna design a 3d mold for iPhone 5, and hopefully print it off after finals.

    I'll post my initial sketches soon. Anyone who wants to work with me on this would be really helpful


    the solution for the seeping is a rubber gasket that the LCd will fit tightly into that will be around a ledge that will allow excess glue to drain away from the lcd.

    it will be vertical and should fit in the UV nail drying things,
    at least that what I use

    problem will be printing because it will have to be very accurate so that the bezel will be as flush with the lcd as possible.

    Anyone who is good friends with a 3d printer....cause I don't know many who will let me do that

    The molds I'm using are the same used in China. The LCD is very snug. The liquid doesn't seep in through the sides. It seeps in through the top because of the way the backlight is assembled. As soon as it spills over the side of the LCD it can get into it. You have to have a gasket on the TOP of the LCD around the border. Not the side.

    If it's upside down you can't see to make sure the alignment is proper or if the glue has spread the whole way, or bubbles.

    Thinking of buying a hot plate that way I can set the temp and not worry about it being to hot or not hot enough. Did a galaxy s3 today 10X easier then the 4-4S's I been practicing on

    In case anyone was wondering, rather than paying for the expensive string to remove the screen it's much more cost efficient to buy a guitar string. Ask for the high E string, a lot of repair shops will sell you strings individually. If not you can always always get a set. I get a set of guitar strings for 7 dollars when I'm retuning my guitar.

    Great to hear. Have you been practicing on iphone 4 glass/lcd or have you tried it on an iphone 5 glass/lcd assembly.

    Just waiting on my mold so I can start assembling them

    Made 1 perfect one today. Still perfecting the seepage which we've got under control. We are pretty certain we have the exact amount of glue we need also.

    Gravity and not a whole lot of glue.

    I put it in a straight line down the middle. Then I lay one side of the glass down and hold the other side up with a toothpick or a screwdriver. Then I slowwwly lay it down so it hits the liquid, if you do it too quick you'll make an air pocket. But if you lay it down super slow and let the liquid hit the glass as it goes all the way down, you wont get any air pockets. Then just let it sit and sit. The glue won't dry or congeal while it's not under the UV so you can just let it spread. You may have to apply the SLIGHTEST pressure near the end to get the corners to spread and to get the last bit of air out.

    Once that's done, I cure it for 1 minute so it doesn't harden but enough to secure the LCD. I pop it out of the mold and clean off any excess, if you put the right amount of glue down you won't have any excess. Then I stick it back in the UV for another 10-15 minutes. Bam, all done.

    It's a little hard to explain without pics but if you guys try it and have questions, just post here. I will try to get a detailed video of how we do it and post it here.
