yh mate iv got the same problem as you (I think)
i bought a brand new digitizer and tried to take off the fiddly lcd connector ... the lcd connector top ripped off and underneath it u can see the gold pics which were messed up
what does the bit at the start mean : "Note: this is a complete guide for replacing a plain front panel. If you have a Front Panel Assembly replacement part, stop before removing the home button from your old front panel, and reverse the steps to install your new front panel assembly."
sorry for being a noob do i have to do the guide diffrently or what
