    I've done many repairs to personal devices, but never separating parts like this. Either way, if I break it I either buy a new phone or the full frame. No stress.
    Well then it sounds like you're in good shape. I think some people were worried you might have gotten yourself into something you couldn't handle. Hope it works, let us know.

    Oh, not saying I can handle it. It could turn into an epic failure. My point in posting was to get a vid of an XL, not 950, or get advice from someone who's done it. It seems to have gone down the path of opinions. But I will likely be doing the surgery weekend after this coming.

    You can handle it in that you're prepared to throw money at it if you break the thing, and that doesn't worry you. That means you're doing this for kicks and not out of desperation. Good Times. We're all a little bit happier in our lives knowing you're not about to give yourself an almighty downer.

    I have the same problem on my 950xl. I watched the German video before I found this thread and it gave me hope that you could replace the glass w/o even opening the phone. I actually managed to find the screen assembly on Amazon, used but original for$115. I'll try to change the glass, if it goes south I'll have a back up. Good luck Allen if you're going to give it a try as well!

    If you get it done, I'll definitely give it a try myself.
