    Default Replacing Glass/digitizer

    I am about to replace the glass & digitizer. I have googled extensively for many nights and read countless instruction pages and watched a couple of videos. I does not look that hard (but nothing ever does until you try it). I have a few questions for those who have done this process before:

    1) How difficult is it actually? I consider myself pretty technically proficient. I build my own pcs, have hard modded an xbox (ok, this took me a couple of days, but that was only because I suck at soldering), etc. I am still a bit nervous.

    2) What should I use for an adhesive? I have seen places selling a special iphone screen tape, but I don't want to wait for shipping (I live in Canada). I won't use crazy glue because of the off gassing.

    Its not hard and wait for the tape in order to make the job as easy as it can be. No reason to go and make things any more difficult than they need to be. I have not modded an iphone but I have modded many devices.
