Well, I think my phone is now broken. It will power up and all the buttons seem to work, no distortions in the LCD display, but no matter what I try the touch screen does not respond. I have tried reseating the cable multiple times. I’ve tried cleaning it. Nothing. I think a larger warning to not touch those cables unless *absolutely* necessary. Also, the iFixit kit comes with a simple suction cup instead of the clamp shown early in the instructions. Unless I was born with at least three arms there is no way to “gently” pry up the LCD display with a single suction cup (because there are ridges on the side that hold it *firmly* in place). I think my TouchID cover went missing as well. Over all, I think it will turn out to be a $150 mistake to have tried this. By the way, this is not the first time that I’ve taken a cell phone apart. Have taken apart two other cells phones to replace batteries before with no problems. taking the iPhone apart is *not* as easy as this guide would make it out to be.
