    ... and now I can't get the LCD to turn on. When I plug it into my mac, it shows up and I can sync it and everything. I notice that the motherboard connection is somewhat loose though. I did a restore and I can't seem to fix it. :confused:

    Not sure what you expect any of us to be able to suggest to help.

    I've not replaced the glass but I have replaced the LCD component before. Did you make sure all three connectors were attached properly, including the one with the tab?

    Take it apart and make sure all three are seated properly, then turn it on and test it before putting it all back together again.

    Check the LCD connector cable inside the phone. They have a tendancy to pop out. If they aren't bent correctly the ribbon cable can be pulled up by the digitizer cable when closing the unit. There should be a slight kind in the cable itself between the 2 white lines.

    It's annoying that the LCD cable itself is actually very rigid and unless bend correctly will pop out of its own accord.
    Thankfully the iPhone is easy enough to open without risking damage imo (suction cup and pull)

    good luck.

    Agree check LCD connector and also reboot the phone (sleep + home button).
