This is the connection to the motherboard from a supposed kindle e-ink replacement screen.



This is a replacement capacitive touchscreen for an iPhone 3GS. The image is too big and I didn't want to page-stretch.

Would it be as simple as finding an LCD screen with the same type of connection as the Kindle's screen has?

Would I need to have a custom circuit board with a connection for both the screen I want to use and another one to the Kindle's display plug?

I would think it would be easier to make some kind of bridge board instead of removing and replacing the plug on the Kindle's motherboard.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am sure that this is possible with a Debian install as it will eliminate driver issues.
