BTW: when I first completed my re-assembly, when I first looked at my screen there was a set of greyish bands that covered about 1/3rd of the screen. Not so dark that clearly blocked the use of those parts of the screen but rather noticable. I shrugged my shoulders, thinking that perhaps there was some internal damage that I couldn’t help having done.
But less than 24 hours after that, that banding has been considerably reduced (covering less than 10%) AND it is much less grey. It is such that I must bring up an app like Notes in order to have a mostly blank white screen in order to see what remains, so perhaps this was merely an artifact left by the ending heating I did to “cure” the waterproof adhesive, and over time it will disappear entirely.
Excellent guide, but may I make a couple of suggestions:
1) in step 18 this guide should strongly recommend that anyone doing the waterproof sealant replacement MUST watch the linked “iPhone Display Adhesive Replacement” guide FIRST considering that it does require an additional tool (no, I did not have enough pennies on me to do the recommended heat treatment followed by weight-pressing the reassembled iPhone assisted by said pennies).
2) also in step 18, you could point out that the forward camera assembly at the top of the front plate of the iPhone 7 has a hooked ridge that must be fitted into the bottom plate for the re-assembly to work at all. Personally I had NOT noticed that, so when I tried to reassemble mine I hadn’t tried to make sure that the ridge was properly placed. Could you add a picture here of that ridge and perhaps recommend that everyone working on disassembly that they should see how it works so they can recall it upon re-assembly.
