Removing LOCA Glue From A Nexus 7 - How I Make The LOCA Removing Putty

+furr Thanks for the great comment, I've always been good at removing all those awful sticky labels manufacturers put on things, and using solvents always seemed to be a messy process. What I realised from the labels etc was that the best glue for removing it was the glue itself. So having purchased and tried all manner of expensive specialist solvents without success, I made myself a Tea and sat there picking at the screen, and the glue stuck to my finger, when I pulled it off,

some of the glue remained on my finger and there was a patch missing on the glass, So I tapped again, and glue attached itself to the glue on my finger and more came off the glass. Then it dawned on me that this was no different from the label glue problem, and within a few minuets the glue was coming off quickly.

It seems its the same for awful glue on a Nexus screen, the answer was literally staring me in the face as I looked at the screen.

The other thing was 'determination' not to fail and to keep trying.
