We recommend watching the below video from start to finish before starting the repair, and then pausing / rewinding and reviewing when needed.

How to Install a replacement touch screen digitizer

To replace the glass touch screen digitizer on this model follow the video above giving you access to the glass and frame. You then need to separate the old glass from the frame. The glass is held to the frame with adhesive. To separate we recommend prying / pushing the glass out. Start from the sides as this has less adhesive. We also recommend using a heat gun or hot hair dryer to warm the adhesive first as this will make it easier. Keep working your way round the phone releasing the adhesive until you are able to remove the glass. Once removed clean off any old adhesive and you are reading to install the new screen.

We now also have a video showing this process below.

Reverse the instructions above to reassemble your phone.

HTC Incredible Droid LCD & Touch Screen Glass Digitizer Screen Repair Written Take Apart Guide:

  • To begin taking apart your HTC Incredible Droid, you will need to first remove the backing and the battery. If you have any problems separating the two, you can use your open safe pry tool for assistance.
  • Next, there will be four screws that need to be removed—one at each corner. Remove them using your small Phillips head screwdriver as shown in figure 1.

  • There are clips between the glass and the backing that will need to be pried and released as you go. Using your open safe pry tool, you will gently release these clips. You may need to work the open safe pry tool gently back and forth to separate the two.
  • Once you have released the clips, you should be able to easily raise the back cover of the phone. Set this aside along with your screws.
  • Next you will need to remove the track pad from the bottom of the phone. To do this, use your open safe pry tool to release the jaw connector, as shown in figure 2. Then you can remove the track pad.

  • You will now need to release three more jaw connectors to be able to release the ribbon cable. There are two on the sides, appearing as small pieces of flexible metal, and one on the bottom. Release these gently using your open safe pry tool, and then you can disconnect the ribbon cable beneath.
  • Once the ribbon cable has been released, you can remove the two small screws that are holding the mother board in place using your Phillips screwdriver. These two screws are diagonal from each other, with one at the bottom left, and the other on the top right.
  • Now that you have removed the two screws, you will be able to gently remove the mother board using your fingers, as shown in figure 3.
