But Yeah, the trials and tribulation thread is a good one, gives you the solder points!

A few very important tips:
1) cover your lcd in plastic and keep in plastic until you are ready for the final mount.
2) Immediately put silicon on every ribbon/wire connector on all your boards and LCD screen as soon as you take it out of the Hip controller. This will toughen the lcd unit and let you pull and tug a little more on the unit when placing it. If you do not silicon all the connection on the LCD board, you will msot likely pull the lcd or wires out of the board. Very delicate unit.

Another thing how hard would it be for me to set the screen up. I'm a 14 year old (don't worry I'm pretty mature for my age), I've never used a soldering iron although my mom has been using them for years (not precision, she uses them for stained glass), I just don't want to mess up my mobo. Is there a safer way of doing it?

Glad I got mine before as they do seem to be in demand now and the stock levels are dropping. I live in the UK and they never even got sold over here so it was a mission to get one in the first place.
