  1. did you replace the glass with frame and digitizer or without frame.Because i did not see you removing frame

  2. Max. I followed your video EXACTLY. Help!!! My Power and volume buttons are NOT WORKING once I reassemble the phone..!!!

  3. Thanks for the video, helped me replace the screen on my phone! My replacement screen needed a few things like the front flash and internal speaker baffles transferred over but was pretty painless!

  4. Not T4 screwdriver, T3. T4 is big. I REPEAT, EVERYONE, IT IS NOT AN EFFING T4, IT IS A T3 screwdriver you need. There, saved all you guys a lot of frustration.

  5. The hipster dude is wrong. It takes a T3 screwdriver for the 20 screws. The T4 doesn't fit. Other folks said T4 as well but they just don't fit. T3 should hopefully do it. I say this cause I bought a screwdriver set specifically that came with a T4 bit for this project and well, it doesn't fit. If the T3 doesn't work, I will take this phone and make it target practice.

  6. T4 is correct. I used T3 and its loose fit stripped 2 screws before I realized it should be T4. When in doubt, do a test fit first. Anyway, how to remove frame from screen?

  7. Anyone knows where I can buy the whole screen assembly with the two grey covers for the screen?I want them already part of the assembly. Do I have to get them from the broken screen?

  8. Hey guys I put mine back together and left half of the screen works but the right glitches out and cant really see it but the touch works fine. What is wrong?

  9. hi, can you make a video of removal of the front frame glass bezel removal for new glass without frame attached.? thank you

  10. I replaced the glass successfully with this video. yes you have to remove the forward flash also but the grills stay in the front bezel frame. seperate the frame from the old glass with a heat gun, razor Blade or exacto knife and use the same technique as the back cover of the phone, heat, cut along edges and gently seperate plastic from the lcd a little at a time. when you start to seperate it out a playing card in the separation to keep it from re sticking while you continue to seperate other areas. use a few if needed. slow and steady wins the race.

  12. Worst fix it video ever. Look, it's easy to fix your phone. Never mind the part where the frame to hold the display on the phone magically appears off the old one and on the new one and never mind the fact that is next to impossible to do…until you've purchased parts and are in the middle of your repair that is. Maybe you can find a WWII era tool to help on your own. Good luck.

  13. Urgent HELP: How do you put back in the speaker mesh grills.. I noticed in the video he didn't shoe how to put it back on.. Anyone??

  14. This is SOOO misleading and such a waste of time and money. Please do not try this. Just replace your phone. Maybe there is a way to get the screen to stick into the casing, but this tutorial completely skips that, not to mention the annoying process of getting the old screen shards out of the casing. The new screen is held in place by the remnants of a thin line of sticky stuff–way less than is on the back skin–and most of that line is pulled off as you are removing the old screen.
