Torn digitizer ribbon cable.
Recently, I was replacing the from assembly for my iPhone 4 when I accidently ripped the digitizer's ribbon cable. Is there anyway to repai or fix the ribbon cable? Or will I have to buy an entire new front assembly?
you will have to buy a new touchscreen + lcd.
I've read about some people who are able to put them back together but I don't think not just anybody can do this.
Try to look for decent replacement parts, been have some trouble with glass being to thick so the button sit's to deep...
have a nice repair

Ribbon cable is tricky. Your best bet it so Ebay a replacement part.
Problem is that it's not seeding right not that the glass is to thick. I wouldn't buy parts off eBay. I used a place close to cincinnati they have a ship in service. Parts are high quality, fast shipping and super nice people.
