    Hey guys, has anyone any good tips for removing the glass from LCD. I dropped my iPhone 5 last week and shattered the glass. Here in Ireland a new screen is 239 so I've decided to try this myself. A friend has a broken iPhone 4S screen which I am going to get from him to practice separating before attempting my iPhone 5. Any tips greatly appreciated.

    Here's a PRO tip - If you're going to start doing this, I'd suggest stocking up on new backlights.



    In case of seepage.

    Yeah there's a few. At first when I saw them selling them I was like "wtf" but nowwwww...

    I've got minimal seepage but there's the occasional one and having a new backlight is really handy in keeping the screen looking pretty. Even if there isn't seepage, handling the LCD/digi in this process can make it look ugly on the back. Doesn't affect functionality but just looks cleaner.

    P.S. If anyone wants to donate their broken iPhone 5 screens to me, I'll gladly take them off your hands. :]

    The video is taking too long. All packed up and ready to go.

    I didn't know if you were gonna put a red frame on it so I just left all the pieces off. They're in bags with their screws. It's not all jumbled up. You'll see.
