Mods, please sticky this? I think it would be good to have it readily available if/when the need arises. Just my opinion

according to this thread:
XT865 vs XT875 LCD screen help

it isn't. I'd get the correct one to be sure.


I went through this a couple weeks ago and was successful. As some added help I used:

I also ordered a roll of this adhesive and these tools. from wireless finest (same seller for both so they came in same package). The screen I ordered came with tools too but I wasn't sure it would so I wanted to be safe. If you do order from Amazon, I'd look for a US seller to avoid any delays from a hong kong order (the lowest price listed).
