    replace Droid Pro Screen and Digitizer

    Recently dropped the Droid Pro and the screen is cracked in about 10 places. I ordered a replacement glass screen and digitizer, and now cannot find any documentation / videos on how to replace the screen. the folks at Verizon were no help and although the phone is less than 1 yr old, Motorola doesnt cover drops in the warranty.

    I don't want to break the guts of the phone or the motherboard, etc. I've successfully taken off the back casing, but want a more expert walk through of next steps. Please help!

    Thanks!

    Don't think the warranty covers damage from a drop.

    Maybe if the screen went dead from normal usage.

    Curious if you had the phone in a case or rubber shell. I love the slim form factor but the phone was too slick for me to use naked.

    thanks for the replies guys! The Pro did not have any sort of protective case. I actually had ordered an Otterbox a few days prior, very poor timing! I bought a replacement screen from repairsuniverse and it seemed to be pretty straightforward, but after taking thw case off I am afraid of breaking core components on the motherboard, etc trying to get to the outer screen.

    Does anyone know of any videos of Pro take-aparts? I couldn't find anything, anywhere on youtube or Bing searches.

    Thanks folks!

    Those videos don't show how to get the digitizer. How do you actually remove the digitizer itself. I am assuming it is glued to the body, but how do you remove the glue and reuse it?

    Good question. I need to do the same. I just ordered the replacement digitizer(wife dropped her phone/screen shattered) but didn't think about the tape/glue. I'm going to try to use a hair dryer to soften it then remove/re-use.

    I believe the new digitizer will include include glue on it and you just have to peel all the old stuff off and clean the surface. Should anyway.
