@danj To be completely clear: If you had to replace the Force Touch Gasket, do you need to put one of the adhesive strips under it? The battery fix kit includes two adhesive strips, but the force touch gasket replacement guide sadly doesn't make *any* reference to them (other than listing two of them as required parts).
Taking your sandwich metaphor (which I appreciate, as it’s how I think of this): if I’m replacing the Force Touch Gasket, do I need to have aluminum case -> adhesive strip -> Force Touch Gasket -> adhesive strip -> screen?
I already did a repair using just the FTG, no strips (since the instructions don’t say where to put either one, or when) but of course the FTG alone isn’t holding the screen. Really don’t want to have to do it three times…
