iPhone 3 screen replacement

If you have a cracked screen (LCD underneath is ok), it's fairly easy to replace.

Ordered a new screen for 15 from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ef=oss_product

Didn't need the majority of tools, just the two screwdrivers and suction cup.

Searched youtube for a guide and found this:

Took about 90 minutes, worst bit was unsticking the existing glass, but otherwise was pretty straightforward. There is a delicate rubber seal that runs around the edge of the screen that got a bit damaged, but can't see this with a case on.

Lots of brownie points earned

I've done the same Ed, fiddly old job but perfectly do-able. Youtube videos were very helpful.
