Although my daughter's TARDIS iPhone 4S case looks cool, it offers NO glass protection whatsoever. So of course, the inevitable happened, and the screen shattered after a solid drop to the pavement.
The repair went well for the most part. I purchased the 4S display repair kit, and it did come with all the necessary tools, although I also used a pair of tweezers which did not come with the kit, but were extremely handy.
I followed the guide and each step had great instructions, notes, and advice for not only the disassembly, but the reassembly as well.
The only hitch was that the 7mm clear plastic ring surrounding the front-facing camera on the new display was ever-so-slightly misaligned and so the display would not fit flush with the device. I tried to remove it to re-align it, and it broke. Using tweezers, I removed the remainder of the ring that was glued to the display, and VERY carefully removed the old ring from the original display, and aligned it with the camera, and then reattached the new display, which now fit perfectly.
I would definitely recommend taping each part down to a piece of paper or card stock, and label each accordingly. The various screws are incredibly small, and this was an ideal way to keep everything organized in one place, especially for the reassembly.
