-Great tutorial - took about 2.5 hours and works great.
-For those of you with a very cracked digitizer or one on which the suction cup otherwise won’t work (like mine), these are my suggestions:
1) cover the glass with clear packing tape so shards don’t get everywhere 2) heat up as directed, 3) use an xacto knife or razor blade to get under the edge of the glass in the spots directed for the pick, pry up with the knife, and put the pick in. Proceed as directed from there. In the “safe areas” you can use the knife to cut the adhesive as well, as an #11 xacto blade isn’t long enough to penetrate beyond the bezel.
-Getting the connectors reseated was the most nerve wracking part - they are hard to line up without any reference.
-The iFixit screen replacement has clear plastic tabs to remove. The order these should be removed in was not clear.
-The digitizer cables tend to get bunched under the right side of the digitizer, try to get these folded down and flattened before the final assembly.
Intermittent or not charging after battery replacement? As others have said, first make sure the battery connector is seated properly. Then make sure that the metal bracket being removed in step 13 is not shorting to the top of the battery connector being disconnected in step 15. Even a tiny bit of metal exposed at the corner of the “battery connector” by accidentally scraping off a bit of the squishy pad on top will lead to unpredictable behavior if it touches the bracket. In my case, the phone would function properly and charge while the case was open on the workbench (ie before finally snapping the display down) but then stopped charging as soon as the case was squeezed tight together for final assembly. I opened it an additional two times before I found a tiny corner of exposed metal on the corner of the battery connector. A generous piece of electrical tape placed between the top of the battery connector and the bottom of the battery connector bracket prevented the short and solved the problem.
