defacer1980: This was, by far, my hardest "only glass" job... But I did it... The glue used it's hard as hell, and there is a thin line spliting LCD damage and remove the heated glue... No rush, and use a piece of glue of it (make a litle ball) to remove the rest of the LCD
Matthew Marcial: Poor baby.
windy49: Guess you should have watched the video from Android Authority. A 1500watt hairdryer worked fine. Also used some packing tape to keep the shards under control. Also - You CAN get the bezel with the replacement LCD and Digitizer. Has to come from China but they are out there about about $55.00. My unit is ready for a new LCD and Digitizer now and the old one came of nicely after the hair dryer and some patient prying with plastic tools.
anox anny: Should of used a heat gun or blow dryer to melt the glue, and that won't happen
Richard Rael: should have used a heat gun to remove the digitizer
BrianTokyo: Did you find the housing in the end? It seems a major pain to dettach it.
shameedify: Does this LCD assembly work with Android 4.1? I don't know what version is mine because the LCD is totally shattered and I don't have display working to upgrade or even find out which version I am on. But there is a good chance that I am on 4.1.
FIXED1T: yep heat gun is the best, and a temperature control version. If you use too much heat you will destroy the working LCD display in the broken Digitizer, well thats if your like me and don't want to pay out for a new LCD when your can split the Digitizer from the LCD. The repair then becomes $20 rather than $60+ for digitizer and LCD.
Eric Jones: They sell the gasket, digitizer lcd & glue for that on Ebay.
Paul Appleton: You need to use a heat gun to heat up the edge to soften the adhesive before you try and separate the screen and the surround, it took me around 30 minutes and I had no breaks or cut fingers
Taylor Sweat: Did you not use a heat gun?
sonyrulesbladZ: Awwwwr, so sorry, thanks a bunch though. I was just about to buy one :(
Nick Capaldi: heat them up it comes right off
Alkis Petinis: you just put a plastic card between the glass and the plastic housing and you can seperate them very easily!! DONT try with razors, screwdrivers and other metal things (you may damage the housing)!!!!
Dennis Leslie: I just did it in about 15 minutes total. Invest in a heat gun.
Erica Milch: all messed up.. throw it away
Tony Xu: Gorgeous tablet, but is plagued by the poor build quality. As much as I hate to admit I'll have to switch over to the iPad. I really wish Google finds a better manufacturer. Asus is total crap when it comes to some of the products they make.
Janno Sannik: Nexus 7 doesn't have glue. It has double sided tape to hold the screen together. Since ebay don't sell you the double sided tape then someone must of changed the dogitizer before. Since double sided tape is somewhat useless for second run, they seem to have decided to glue it together (that was my backup plan also). I used the digitizer+lcd kit to replace nexus 7 screen.
paleofemme: Take your Nexus, throw it out the window - buy a Kindle Fire.
Inteligent Kid: Awwwwwww muffin.
