Today I have spend half a day on fixing my totally wasted looking first generation iPhone. Have a look at the picture for what remains of the LCD and digitizer I took out. Since it is such a robust device I thought let’s give it a try to repair the heavily damaged glass screen, so I ordered a ‘iPhone 2G Complete Replacement Screen – Includes LCD & Digitizer’ at DirectFix.
Once finished the repair, my iPhone 2g was alive and with a shiny new LCD. Only the bezel is still heavily scratched and remembers me of the accident. It adds some unique industrial look and feel *lol*. The guys at pdaparts who created the tutorial and rated the LCD replacement as very difficult were very right. It took me quite some time to dis- and reassemble.
So, after all I am mobile again..
