Be aware that the LCD is glued not just at the edges, but also in the middle (the orange areas in the photos for Step 20. These can adhere strongly enough to cause the LCD to crack. Don't ask how I know that.

Nathan Hillery - Yanıt

I cracked it this way, so yeah. Any way to get the glue fluetly enough to get the LCD off the rest of the Phone? (the LCD and digitalizer is cracked anyway)

Mick Trompke -

Onfortunately I read this to late. Many thanks anyway for confirming I'm not the only one ;)

Been there man. Had my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active pull one of those numbers. not a fun time.

Cameron Dawson -

Am I missing something?

How does it get re glued when you reverse the process? Doesn't it need to be re glued so water doesn't get into the hardware past the screen?

That would be my concern, the phone not being waterproof after the repairs are completed.

Thanks for your insight. Guide is done very well.

Bogdan.
