It wasn't easy but it was a success!

Mijn probleem

The screen was cracked and the battery was not holding a charge.

Mijn oplossing

The repair would have gone better if I wouldn't have tried to rush it. As someone suggested I printed out the step by step instructions and taped the screws and parts to the exact spot on the picture of each step. When I put the new screen on I failed to feed the new cable ribbons all the way thru the slot in the phone and as a result I was not able to plug one of them into the logic board. I had to take it all apart from that point back to the beginning of the reassemble. I was frustrated and I wasn't as careful about keeping track of the screws and parts. I did get it all put back together and it wouldn't power on! I really didn't know what to do. Fortunately I have a spare Iphone that I took the back off of and set it next to the one I was fixing. Looking at both of them I noticed that on one of the two screws that secures the battery connector to the logic board has a gold colored part that consists of a prong that I assume serves as a ground for the battery that makes contact with the back once it is in place. I missed that part when I reassembled the phone. I found the part and on the correct sheet of paper that I had printed out with all of the steps on, attached it to the screw on the battery connector, replaced the back on the phone and the phone powered up and is working perfect!

Mijn advies

Take your time, don't panic, and be careful as you are feeding the new cables thru the phone. They will plug into the logic board perfectly but you have to make sure that the cables aren't kinked.
