    Hey guys, so my iphone 2g cracked. I tried replacing the glass, but it just cracked a second layer of glass underneath it. I guess that was the touch screen glass? Anyway, they both ended up falling out. Now it just has this final "screen" like thing, which is just a white light. What is this? What parts would I need to repair the iphone, given what I have now?

    I can post more pictures if needed

    that would be your LCD. usually on a 2g the lcd comes attached to the outer glass and the digitizer.

    You need to replace the digitizer and LCD as one unit - it's the only viable way.

    when you dropped your phone it damaged the lcd also. this is a very major repair and most cases cannot be completed by someone other than a iPhone technician/repair shop. in fact most reparir shops do not work on the iPhone 2g because it is so hard! :(

    Agreed, I think you should just buy a whole new iPhone altogether. You'd save more money and not to mention, a better iPhone. :D :apple:

    in fact you are looking at close to $100 in parts and shipping from an actual parts distributer. a reseller will charge you a profit also. if you can do an upgrade you can buy a 3g for $99 from att.
