Brilliant Step-By-Step guide. My phone needed new digitizer as just a black screen was showing when turned on, must have happened from a drop. I bought the digitizer screen combo from ebay and used this guide to dress across the components. Worked first time! There are a couple of other spongy or supportive rubber pieces around certain components that were in the original phone so I transferred those also, I guess they are there just to ensure tight connections etc. Absolute lifesaver!
