Step 5: remove four torx screws

You know, with the torx screwdriver.

HINT:  If you're very disorganized or you're planning on leaving the thing apart for several days, immediately put the screws back in the holes they came from after you separate the parts.  It's a little bit of extra work, but it'll keep the tiny screws from getting mixed up or lost on the floor.  This is a good rule of thumb whenever you're taking stuff apart.

Oh how I love those HUSKY screwdrivers!
Wow I am astonished to find out that we all have had this same problem happen to us!<br>
Thanks a LOT!!!!! This was a very simple to follow instructable = ) <br>Fortunately I didn't have to purchase a new screen, I was able to use the screen from another HTC hero 2 phone that I replaced a few months ago using the warranty. This fix it cost me $0.00 out of pocket at this time, who could beat that?!?!? Just a suggestion to others out there......When possible keep your old phone, you never know when/if it will come in handy as spare parts! <br>Thanks again!!!!!!
This was awesome! I replaced my screen in 20 minutes with minimal problems. I spent 50 bucks on the screen and repaired it myself with ease! Thanks!!
After doing all of this how do I actually get the screen itself out to put the replacement one???
I just did the same thing... ugh. My glass came with a different adhesive. I tried to scrape all the old foam/glue stuff off. All you could do was just force the old glass off and slide the ribbon gently through the slot in the in plastic frame.
Well, as I said in the Instructable, my replacement part consisted of the whole front part of the phone, so I didn't need to tear apart the fascia to get at the separate screen parts. I'm sorry I can't help you any further in the process.
I hope and there will be android phones for AT&amp;T soon!
try the fuze its alot better
&nbsp;@Brighterfusion: I really appreciate this tutorial and your feedback. I was able to buy the whole front part/replacement kit from ebay ($59.99). The tools you advised from Home Depot were all that was needed. Thank you so much for making this process easy. Now I am up and running. I just wish I was able to save the white sticker on one of the screws. Obviously, my warranty is voided now. But great work and thanks again.
Thanks so much for your note!&nbsp; It's really nice to hear that the work I put into the Instructable was a concrete help to somebody out there.&nbsp; Thanks for letting me know it worked out for you!&nbsp; And now you've got a couple of really handy screwdrivers for taking apart the rest of your tech toys...<br />
Link to the facia purchase or the exact name would be cool.&nbsp;&nbsp; Have same issue.<br />
Hi!&nbsp; Thanks for your question.&nbsp; I bought it from the eBay seller <font style="font-size: 10.0pt;font-family: arial , sans-serif;color: rgb(0,0,0);">doctorwatsonsclinic, but looking at his store today, I&nbsp;don't see that part listed.&nbsp; Sorry!&nbsp; Good luck with your repair.</font>
How much did you pay for your repair kit?
$49.99 with free shipping.<br />
&nbsp;What part did you buy from ebay? I have the same issue but don't know if I need to buy touchscreen digitizer or lcd glass?

&nbsp;What was the name of the part you ordered? Thanks for a quick reply.
&nbsp;Did you order touch screen digitizer or lcd display? (My hero fell and the outer glass is broken. All the functionality is there.)&nbsp;
It was the whole front face of the phone -- both the digitizer and the display.&nbsp; Take a look at the pics in the instructable!&nbsp; You can see.<br />
