Is it waterproof after repair?

Gerroe - Ответить

Hey no i dont think it is 100% waterproof

Kevin D -

Reassembly instructions would have been nice as it's far more difficult to re-fit the screen than take it off. My advice to anyone doing this is to make sure the lcd is fitted in the correct position in the phone before sticking the screen down properly otherwise you might have to start the whole process again to realign the lcd.

Clems - Ответить

Thats true. And my apologies for that. It was late that day and i did it alone so i needed both hands to do this. But your info i correct. thanks for that.

Kevin D -

Any ideas on where to buy parts? I have tried Aliexpress but ran into quality issues.
