The kit didn’t come with any instructions or even description of the parts, not even naming the contents. It’s VERY helpful to watch the YouTube video in addition to following theses steps. It’s what gave me the confidence to undertake this task in the first place. I didn’t realize this odd blue thing was actually replacement adhesive until I closed up the phone. I’ll hang onto it just in case I notice any issues, because the video doesn’t mention it, either, and says the phone works just fine without it.

The suction cup material was very stiff and wouldn’t adhere well even after thoroughly cleaning the screen. Applying heat from a hair dryer helped with that, too.
