Maybe a few years ago it was impossible to remove the digitizer from the LCD, but in this day and age, most things are possible. If you know where to look, you will be surprised. Please note that this option to REMOVE A CRACKED/NON-WORKING digitizer from the LCD is NOT for everyone. I say this as the costs to remove a single cracked digitizer isn't worth the cost of the machine. But if you're in the business, and you didn't realize that such a machine exists (to remove digitizers from lcds), then you shouldn't imply that such a machine does NOT exist.
