Replacing iPhone 4 screen

Disclaimer: You attempt the following at your own risk. I am not a licensed technician of any sort, just an individual who researched this problem.

A friend of mine recently managed to crack his iphone screen by dropping it face-down on a rock while we were biking. Needless to say, he was pretty upset. He had jail broken the iphone and voided the warranty, so he couldn't go to the apple store, and professional repair services cost a fortune... well, much more than it would cost to repair it yourself. 

So we begun the fun process of finding resources to help us fix his phone. It was a long and tedious process, but in the end we succeeded in replacing his screen successfully. Here are the resources we used, and I hope you find them useful. I would suggest you watch each video completely before beginning the disassembly.
