My daughter in law shattered the glass on her iPhone 5S and it was a great opportunity to practice repair skills.
I had the requisite tools from previous repairs as well as the magnetic mat (a great help in keeping track of parts) and the iFixit directions for the process were spot on. After replacing the display assembly I fired up the phone and got saw the "bars and squares several other users mentioned in the forum. I opened the phone back up, recycled the connections and turned the phone on before completely closing it back up and it worked perfectly. Finished closing it up and it's working like new.
I didn't buy the home button for this repair and found you have to be very careful in removing it during the display replacement. The flexible membrane anchoring the button to the display is delicate. It was tedious to remove in one piece but came out fine and is functioning perfectly after the repair. This is important for the touch ID function as the replacement button does not preserve this function...according to what I've read.
