iPhone 5 Glass Replacement

Postby s4charged » Wed Oct 02, 2013 1:28 am

Anyone here have experience doing a iPhone 5 GLASS ONLY replacement? Methods of removing the LCD and cleaning the adhesive on it? Also what you guys use to glue the screen back to the lcd?

Molly Wire and Hotplate for removal, MEK to remove old LOCA or one of those LOCA cleaning irons.

To re attach either OCA or LOCA, OCA requires a vacuum, you don't "need" a vacuum with LOCA.

Heres my method guys,
MAKE SURE to take the backlight off of the LCD, desolder it, and put tape on the rear of the LCD and Xacto around the edges ( be careful around the top by the ribbons it will break off)
-put a dummy backlight into the mold to mimick the regular height
-Loca the glass to the lcd
-before putting the backlight back on make sure and put tape down on the sides of the lcd that are the "rails" connecting the top and bottom. its the only way to get the frame to stick to the screen
-Solder backlight back on and make sure no light leaks out.
-put frame back on
-Refurbished!
