I'll give this quide a 3/5. The problem is the end where you just say reverse the steps. That is an easy out that too many people use. There are important things to do when re-assembling that are not pointed out that may come back to bite you just attempting to reverse the steps. I do like the stepped pictures showing before and after views. Overall the process is not that bad other than removing the broken glass which breaks a lot more as you go. A hair dryer on high worked fine for warming up the glue, you just need to be aware of cleaning the area of glass bits before turning it on. Glad I didn't pay somebody big bucks to do this job.

Due reassebling its really important to bend the digitizer cable with a spudger inside the case. If you just press the Front down the cable will be between adhensive and case. So near the home button, it won't fit very well!!
