Where to Buy Nexus S AMOLED Screen ?


Broke my phone last month..



Its i9020 Nexus S (AMOLED) which was never sold in India.

As far as I can tell its a fairly easy procedure to replace the screen + touch digitizer kit.


The issue is that the amoled replacement screen is not available locally, or at least I couldn't find one.

The cheapest I could find is -



I am thinking that the screen replacement will fix the phone because it turns on, alarm rings, and it even rings when called.

Questions:
Should I go ahead and order this one, or look some more for better deals?
Am I missing anything important here?

The issue is that the amoled replacement screen is not available locally, or at least I couldn't find one.

The cheapest I could find is -
Amazon.com: Samsung Google Nexus S i9020, AMOLED, Full LCD Screen Display, Touch Screen Digitizer Front Glass Faceplate Lens Part Panel Assembled Together, Mobile Phone Repair Parts Replacement: Electronics

I am thinking that the screen replacement will fix the phone because it turns on, alarm rings, and it even rings when called.

Are You Still having this Lying unused ?? Or you got it repaired ??. I will be interested in purchasing it for one of my projects. (Only if it everything is working except screen.)

Also, do Is it i9020 or i9020A or i9020T every model has different LCD type I think...

I still have it, never got around to ordering the replacement. It was working when I posted this thread, used to ring when called.
Give me a day to look it up and test if it still works.

Re: Where to Buy Nexus S AMOLED Screen ?

My Nexus S (i9023) phone's board died due to Google OTA 4.1 update , all i did was to find a person with a Nexus S (same model) user with a cracked screen , found one on olx for a cheap price, almost 3k. but later I sold the Nexus S.

You are lucky one, but that can be recovered through Adam outlers tool.
My nexus S is i9020.
It is showing default bootloader and CWM recovery but isn't booting into OS.
I installed CWM on it and it got automatic bootloader locked.
Now when I use adb to unlock bootloader it is stuck at unlock permanently,
When I boot in CWM it says can't mount SD card.
Can't flash anything, can't unlock bootloader.
When I fastboot anything, it says bootloader locked.

I also don't have any CWM backup.

Model number is i9020 (no A, T or i9023)


Were u fixed yours or sold as it is??
Have you have that board lying with you ???

I sold it after replacing the board. Adam Outler's tool was a solution i wanted to try but it didnt quite guarantee that the board would work after that, it would only convert it into a development board. I didnt go further into it due to my lack of skill in soldering (I'm a software guy ). I just replaced the board in my Nexus S and it worked without any issues (Power button was always a bit faulty, had mapped the 'search' key as power).

I still have the non-working board with me though, its untouched and just lying around in my desk drawer.

By any chance Can you donate that to me, I will be happy to pay if it worked in my system...
Atleast that cell can be used by my youngers...
Let me gather some more info though, whether i9023 board will work on i9020....

I can say mine is emmc bug bricked, unrecoverable w/o board /chip change..
