I have a Nexus 7 first gen.  The digitizer is cracked.  To replace it, do you have to buy the digitizer and the screen?

    As Hovsep mentions, it may be easier and quicker to purchase the digitizer and screen as a set and replace both instead of taking the time and effort of disassembling and reassembling. You do not have to, but you would have to be very careful and use the right materials to make sure it turns out right.

    The XDA tear down and repair tutorials that Hovsep mentions is one of the best around.
