    How bad is ripping cable #2? I was trying to remove the screws that was attached from the lcd to the metal holding but I couldnt unscrew them because they were too tight so i grew restless and decided to take the glass off which then i found cable #2 detached from the lcd and now im sitting here not having any idea what to do.


    Is it needed? Is it replaceable?

    Yeah, they don't usually put parts inside a device this size unless they're needed.

    The first hit on Google for "iphone ribbon cable #2" contains replacement instructions, and the third hit contains places you can buy the part.

    Cable 2

    Cable 2 is the digitizer cable from the glass/digitizer assembly to the logic board. If it is ripped, you will not have any interaction with your phone via the touch panel. You will need to perform a glass / digitizer repair or have it done by a professional.
