    So just installed a BSE on the front of my iPad and was wondering if there's anyway I can speed up the drying process? Can I take a blow dryer lightly to it?

    If I turn my screen on before 24hrs could I damage it?

    I've done it. Be careful with the heat! Don't overheat it! Even a fan would be a big help.

    As long as there is no water internally you should be OK.

    I have done quite a few BSE's for myself, family and friends. I use a blow dryer as a regular part of the install just like compressed air, soapy water and a squeegee. I find that the blow dryer doesn't really help dry any faster but it helps to shrink the skin and give it a nicer fit and adhesion. The water spots do take 24 -48 hours to disappear but you can use the device well before that.

    I recommend sleeping, drinking, humping, and drinking some more for the couple days... If it needs a couple days to dry what's the harm of waiting?
