I fixed it!

Only 18 months after first dropping my iPhone 3G, I finally fixed it! I ordered the iPhone 3G front panel kit from ifixit and after only 90 minutes of tedious, pain staking, nerve wrecking, nail biting action, my screen is fixed!

I would highly recommend using this kit. It comes with an awesome precision screwdriver set, new glass, and costs only $60. Make sure you have nerves of steel, extreme patience, excellent hand-eye coordination,  microscopic vision, and no kids around, before you get started.

The best part was at the end of the instructions: To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. DUH...

At the end I was left with only one minuscule screw and a rubber bushing. Apparently they are not critical to my phone's functionality.

Behold the end result.

I can't wait till I drop it again so I can get an iPhone 4G.
