How To Fix an iPhone 3G / 3GS Broken Screen Glass DIY

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

    Taking the iPhone apart

  1. Step 1

    Turn off the iPhone. Remove the SIM card by inserting a paper clip into the small hole at the top. Remove the two screws at the bottom. Push the suction cup onto the glass. Pull up to separate the glass.

  2. Step 2

    Three cables will hold the two pieces together. Remove the first two using a paper clip. The third is beneath a tab under the first two cables. The last cable should be pulled out gently.

  3. Step 3

    On the screen, remove six screws: two on one side, one on the bottom of the surface behind the glass, one visible on the other side and two under tape on that side.

  4. Step 4

    To remove the LCD, use a paper clip on the sides to hook the bottom corner that has a circle, and pull out.

    Removing the broken glass

  5. Step 1

    Using tweezers, remove the black tape behind the glass on each of the four edges.

  6. Step 2

    Use a hair dryer around the edges of the glass for about 5 minutes to heat the glue.

  7. Step 3

    Pry the glass from the plastic holder. Be sure to remove all the broken glass.

    Installing the glass

  8. Step 1

    Put the adhesive strips at the top and bottom of the plastic holder.

  9. Step 2

    On the new glass screen, remove all the film from the black bottom and top, leaving the protective film on the glass so no fingerprints will get inside. There will probably be two pieces of film on the black parts.

  10. Step 3

    Line up the glass with the holder, making sure the cable goes under the holder. When the two pieces match up, press down to stick the glass to the adhesive strips.

  11. Step 4

    Remove the film from the glass.

    Reassembly

  12. Step 1

    Put the LCD back in the holder with all the holes for the screws aligned. Press it in place. Replace all the screws.

  13. Step 2

    Press all the cables into place in the reverse order of their removal.

  14. Step 3

    Align the two pieces — the screen and the unit — and press them together with the holes lined up.

  15. Step 4

    Replace the screws and your SIM card.

iPhone 3G vs 3GS

If you’ve broken your iPhone 3G vs 3GS and contemplating on one the following scenarios think again:

“Why can’t I replace my broken iPhone 3G Digitizer and/or iPhone 3G LCD with a newer iPhone 3GS Digitizer and/or iPhone 3GS LCD, it has to be better, right?”

or

“Why can’t I replace my broken iPhone 3GS Digitizer and/or iPhone 3G LCD with an older and cheaper iPhone 3G Digitizer and/or iPhone 3GS LCD?”

Are the iPhone 3G vs 3GS parts the same?

Yes and no. On the screen connectors specifically, Apple slightly changed the connectors on the mainboard of the iPhone 3GS. In short, the 3G vs 3GS parts for the screen are not interchangeable.
