    Hey guys:

    I have seen videos and it doesn't look hard to replace the glass on this device. My question is how do I know what to purchase. The prices are all over the place. Do I need to replace only the glass? Or do I need to replace the screen with lcd & touch panel??? This is much more expensive. The unit seems to be working perfectly.
    Also, can you recommend an online store to use?

    Thanks

    It'll be hard to find a good digitizer on it's own for cheap...

    Try here though.

    I will buy the kit you recommended, but I don't think it comes with the glue/adhesive strips. Do you know where I can purchase them?
