    A guitar pick is a great substitute for a safe pry tool. They are thin and flexible enough to work great without damaging the device.

    You're right. A lot of people like to use them as shims as well.

    What do you use to glue the outer screen to the touch screen when assembling it back together.

    We never recommend using glue! Use adhesive strips, which we have available at RepairsUniverse (dot) com.
