When your screen is completely shattered it's not so easy to apply the suction cup and pulling it off... :D

Stick a layer of parcel tape on the screen and you're good to go :D

Once the screen is removed, how do you glue the new one back on? What kind of glue to use so it doesn't melt, or leave the phone non-waterproof? How best to clean the surfaces for gluing, what tools do you need? How do you ensure the edges stay clean and good looking? This guide leaves the job half done :/

I think nobody here can say for sure if it is waterproof after a manual repair ..... An the most covers (Front and back cover) comes with "glue-tape" ( not sure if it is the correct word for that)
