Unfortunately, I dropped my phone one too many times and although the screen did not crack/shatter, the display now only renders vertical lines.
The repair more or less required taking out most of the phone's components to get to the display, so you bet I was nervous that I was going to unintentionally break something else on the phone. The entire process took me 3 hours to complete. At the end of it all, much to my surprise and relief, I was able to complete the display replacement without affecting any of the phone's components.
I was very careful to make sure that as I removed parts that I placed then in that same order on the table. That way, all I had to do was work backwards when putting the phone back together. That ensured I wasn't getting the 1.2mm screw mixed up with the 1.3mm screw.
Step 39 - The guide was not joking about the gasket on the home button being a thin rubber. As I pulled up the home button from one side, I ended up with a small tear in the gasket, oops. When transferring the home button from the old to the new display, I would recommend pulling up the corners of the gasket before trying to peel off the home button.
