    Default Replacing iPhone glass!? Success!?
    I am wondering if anyone has a successful method of replacing the cracked glass on a working LCD display. I have tried replacing the glass on 3 different iPhones and all end up not working because of the "Gorilla glue" that is used to glue the Glass to the LCD/Digitizer.

    What works to get that broken glass off with out damage to the LCD?

    I have tried simple scraping to using a heat gun to loosen the adhesive and then scrape.

    Lets open this up as a thread to find a solution!

    Very carefully scraping the glass away, so you don't break the digitizer.

    Thanks for the reply. I have a few questions about it though!?

    Do you loosen the adhesive at all or just a cold scrape?

    What is the best type of razor blade to use? Sheetrock or an actual scraping blade?

    Do I need to try to take it off in one piece or do I attempt to crack the glass into smaller pieces?

    it never works. that glue (the sensitizer) is on there so good it will break the lcd 100% of the time even warming it and scraping.

    I had a LCD issue with my 1st gen iphone which I sent in for repair. Pixels were starting to go. I didn't want to f*** around with repairing it myself, since I didn't know what I was getting into. They did a great job, and were very quick to ship it back to me. They called me the day they received it to go over what the cost was going to be, and what they would do. I had them install a new battery while they had it apart, and they only chared me for the actual battery, not the install since they had it apart already. Good people. Anyway I would recommend you go that route if you don't know what your getting into. Here is the link. RapidRepair. In case anyone is wondering I have no affiliation with them what so ever.
