    Good luck from all the reading I have done about it the back side is easy but the front side is the tough part.

    There are a few thing to be wary of when replacing the front screen. There are a total of 10 screws holding the front screen on (plus adhesive). Depending on the age of your iPhone, you may need to buy a pentalobe screw driver to open the phone initially.

    The point most repairs go south is when putting the front screen on. Be sure to make sure the ribbon that connects the digitizer does not get stuck on the frame, otherwise you will crimp it and the whole part will be useless.

    Good Luck.
