Follow this guide to replace the screen or display adhesives for the Galaxy S8. This procedure is meant to be followed in conjunction with the Galaxy S8 screen replacement guide.

  1. Remove all traces of adhesive and debris from the phone's frame. Clean the adhesion surface with high concentration isopropyl alcohol (over 90%) and wipe it clean with a lint-free cloth. If glue or glass remnants are left behind, the new display will not mount correctly and may be damaged. Lay the adhesive strips out to get an idea of where they go.

My set of adhesive strips were a mirror image of these pictures, meaning the strips when solely attached to the green plastic liner were arranged to adhere to the back cover, not onto the phone! This is likely a production issue with the green plastic liner and clear plastic backing being swapped. Like in these pictures here, the seal strips stay aggressively with the green plastic liner upon pealing off the clear plastic liner; however, they were then an incorrect mirror image when trying to position then to the phone. This forced me to painstakingly use scotch tape the position and secure edges of the green plastic to the phone first (sticky side of strips facing up), and then lower the back cover down onto the phone, to adhere the strips to the back cover first. Then, lift off the back cover to removed the green liner, exposing adhesive to apply to the phone-side. Trust me, I didn’t install the strips upside down, or mirrored. This is just the way all my strips came, and there was no other workaround.

Hi Kevin,

First, I’m sorry to hear of your troubles! I’m glad you came up with a system to get the adhesive on. Very ingenious!

I looked into this issue and found that the adhesive you got is correct. Unlike the screen adhesive, which should be applied to the frame first, the back cover adhesive should be applied to the back cover first. Unfortunately, we don’t have any explicit guides for the back cover adhesive. However, I will edit the device guides to clarify that point.

Thanks for bringing this observation up!

Thank you for the rapid response, Arthur. You’re very welcome. I presume IFixIt sources these strips from a common supplier, also serving competitors. These multi-piece strips have very fine hole, notch, and angular details demanding a level of placement precision not easily achievable by adhering them on the back cover first — especially if intended to restore a level of water resistance. Ifitit stands out above it’s competitors, as the kit was excellent. It might further differentiate itself by provided a template to nest into the back cover first, creating a guide. Again, thank you for your product and support. Excellent.

I will keep your feedback in mind about the template. As for water resistance, replacing the back cover adhesive will unfortunately still compromise the water resistance, unless you use an adhesive press.
