One evening I was casually moving my Droid Bionic and in the process it slipped out of my hand and slammed surprisingly hard into the wall. Upon inspection my worst fears were realized as the screen had become a cracked mess. The upside if there was one was that besides the damaged glass, the phone still worked and still responded to touch input. Here is the old screen after replacement, not pretty.
Now being the technologically sound and handy person that I am (cheap) I decided to try to fix the screen on my own. In the past I have also successfully repaired a Droid X LCD so I had a little experience going into the process. In the end I was able to fix the screen successfully in less than an hour. The process wasn’t too difficult provided you have the right information and tools, and I thought I would put the information I used togather for others who find themselves in the same position.
You can find a cheap OEM replacement screen + digitizer on ebay. I found one for around $30 that included all the necessary tools. I would recommend ordering one that includes all the tools since they can be a pain to find at the local hardware store or Radioshack depending on where you live. In the end you will only need a Torx T5 screw driver and a pry tool.
One note to mention is that you will need to remove the sticker on the back of the battery compartment to get the frame separated. I spend a few minutes struggling with this as it is not mentioned in the video.
Below are the links and videos that you will find helpful. Good luck!
