Using a heat gun, heat around the edges and seperate the glass from the front cover. Work from bottom up. Note the digitizer cable runs through a small hole behind the lcd, in the top of the phone.

  • When the glass is seperated, carefully lift the lcd a bit, to get the digitizer cable through the hole.

  • To protect the lcd from residue and fingerprints, cover it with masking tape, until you are ready to seal the glass to the cover.

  • When you have prepared new adhesive tape and the digitizer cable has been pulled through the hole to the backside of the phone.

  • Remove the masking tape from the lcd, and using some canned air, blow away dust and close the glass cover.

  • Finally reverse the disassembly and enjoy.

What kind of adhesive to use to stick back the screen onto the phone?

I use 3m doublesided adhesive tape. You can buy them in rolls at cut them to fit.

It is also necessary to transfer a small foam spacer stuck around the frame of the digitizer from your old digitizer to the new one. There is also a plastic tab on at the bottom that should be transferred. Please notice this.

Hello sorry for my late reply.

I haven't had the chance to replace the loudspeaker, but earpiece is a square block, that you can pry out and replace, after you have seperated the front from the back.

Dissasembly will most likely break waterproof. Haven't tested.

Only advice is to open it again, and verify that all connectors are connected. Try bootĩng with charger plugged in.

Hi - super guide. I have replaced my digitizer no problem.

It wasn't all plain sailing though. I made a mistake (as a newbie) that I think might help others.

1: Before reassembly I wanted to check that the new digitizer would work. Very carefully I plugged the battery, lcd and digitizer back in and tried to boot up the phone. The parts weren't reassembled, simply arrange so I could get all the cables in.

On boot up the phone got stuck on the Sony screen. I assumed I'd somehow caught the phone in flash mode or something. This put me into a bit of a spin.

However, when I actually reassembled the phone it was fine - it booted up as normal. Perhaps their is a sensor somewhere that means the digitizer has to be over the lcd before the phone will work. Anyway. All sorted now thanks for the guide!
