Wonderful instructions. Very comprehensive and clear. I would have found a bit more insight into installing the new adhesive helpful, as well as any guidance on how thoroughly the old adhesive needed to be removed. Took me about 2.5 hrs, working slowly and deliberately. Thanks Sam!
I wonder if their replacement Display Assemblies might come with non-functional components? The actual display replacement went smoothly, but neither the earpiece speaker or the front-facing camera worked. After opening and re-seating connectors several times, I replaced the earpiece in the newly purchased iFixit assembly with the one from the broken display assembly - and it now works! I'm contemplating doing the same with the camera, but the reason that I paid for the entire assembly was so that I did not have to do this. I have seen this issue in several other comments, and wonder if this is a systemic problem with their products, and wonder what the quality control process is?
