I think steps 7 through 9 are still helpful. They have some important additional info that I would not want to miss ...

If your screen is already broken you don't have to use so much heat. Once a corner is up and broken simply peel the screen off. Be aware that it will make a mess, so try to do this in a plastic bag or something

How do I just repare a cracked screen. Not the LCD

Lorenzo Fernandez - Contestar

It's a really difficult and risky repair unless you have specialized tools. You can use a hot plate to separate the lcd from the glass and work it apart with a playing card, then use a special uv adhesive to attach the new one . Most skilled technicians and repair shops won't attempt this repair because of how fragile the lcd is. They make machines that automatically separate the lcd from the glass but it's still a risky repair. I wouldn't recommend trying it unless you want to do it as a learning experience. You'll most likely have to replace the entire screen.
