    Thanks everyone for your help/suggestions in my previous thread on what to do about my cracked screen.

    I think at this point the cheapest option would be for me to buy a replacement digitizer ($65) and try and do the replacement myself. Does anyone know how to do this? Or know of a youtube link or website that has step by step instructions for replacing the digitizer? I searched but could not find anything.

    Thanks in advance!

    I recently performed this fix on my sisters Eris. I too purchased the ebay replacement for $65.00. It really is a simple fix. You will need some sort of adhesive to affix the new digitizer as the new one does not come with any. I used 3m vhb double sided tape.
