    Default iPhone 3g broken LCD whilst replacing home button.

    Hello, I have a 3g. I was 'trying' to replace the home button follwing the ifixit.com tutorials. Whilst using the plastic spudger tool to detach glass from LCD I think i damaged the lcd. The home button works ok but now when turned on the screen has white marks all over it, you can just about see the icons, but it's a big white mess!

    So my questions are :

    1. I assume I have knackered the LCD ?

    2. Do I need to buy a complete front panel assembly or can I just buy the LCD part (the glass and home button and everything is ok)?

    3. When the pro's do broken glass replacements do they just replace the glass or do they fit a whole new front assembly?

    Any help would be very, very much appreciated.

    Having done a quick bit of research can I check my understanding of the parts in the front pancel assembly. You have the glass obviously then the digitiser? then the LCD panel? If the screen is showing white marks all over it (as explained above) is just the LCD that is broken? How about the digitiser?
