    Does anyone know where I can get the tool they had for separating the coloured part away from the screen. The thing that looks like a frame that fits around the phone. I was thinking of getting a couple of spare backs in white and yellow so that I can interchange them.

    I can't fine anything on the nets about it except it is called SS-321

    I think you can open it without this frame

    What I know, is that the digitizer is bonded to the glass (with LOCA). But is the digitizer bonded additionally to the lcd, or are they separate like in 920?

    Bought a 1520 with a smashed screen from the bay and I'd like to get some information before things get dirty :D

    I believe someone cited the Service Manual (a few posts above) a good read of that might furnish your answer (while watching the video).

    A quick glance tells me NO, as they don't break down the Display Assembly - it stays as one piece !! I'd buy the complete assembly & replace that, there may have been some damage below the digitizer. (I believe the service manual references it as one piece !)

    Lessons Learned : I dropped my Lumia 920 & had to have the digitizer replaced. Repair shop (they referenced experience with this unit) ruined it & bought me a new one (a completely other story of about 5 weeks) ... issue was getting the digitizer to adhere to the LCD assembly. Heat (from the unit under stress - gaming) subverted the seal, upper right hand corner, whacked the prox sensor. It was all downhill from there, they glued the digitizer, but got glue on the prox sensor & finally bricked the phone after the umpteenth time taking it apart.
