Had to, screen was cracked
Very well, thx. Two small hiccups I missed in the guide was the small plastic tab that lies under the three cables at the top of the screen when you have it off has to go underneath the screen panel when putting the metal plate back on top of your display. I forgot to reading through the guide and only figured it out by looking at the pictures how it was before I took the plate off. And second, though the guide does tell how to do it, I found it nearly impossible to remove the very small cable attached to the plate that is the connector for the home button sensor. The connector part was very well attached to the plastic and no tool could just pry it up as seen in the pictures. Perhaps I should have found a way to apply a little heat to it. Looking at the back once I did manage to remove it, the plastic backing to the cable looks broken, by means of a small flap that opens and shuts where the adhesive is, and I don't know if I caused it when removing, or whether it is meant to be that way. Aside from the cosmetics of this, I have had no word to say that the sensor is no longer working, so I am hopeful in assuming that it is not broken. Apart from those two things though, the repair went as smooth as any and I am happy with my replacement screen!
It may be worthwhile having and knowing how to apply those small replacement adhesive backings to some of the wires. Particularly, it is exceedingly engaging reinstalling the front camera/flash/speaker whilst all the wires are loose and dangling willy nilly while having to hold everything down with a finger to reinstall the plate. I never know if I have it folded up and held in correctly until I put it all back together and test the phone, as those pieces all fit into a relatively small space. The adhesive may make it feel like I'm at least setting the cables where they need to be before I pack it all in
