Herotab M802 (Apad iMX515 8"): A Sudden Twist of Fate

We have this Herotab M802 tablet for a while. Just a while ago, I was trying to connect a USB cable at the back of my CPU... when I accidentally leaned on the panel of this tablet. Heard a soft 'tick'. I thought it was just the whole panel responding to the force created by my 'soft' lean... but, oh no! A crack ran across the whole screen from top bottom!

It is kaput!!!

The crack appeared at about 1/3 of the screen from right (side where 'Back' button is) to left. Upon testing, that 1/3 portion responds to touch, but the remaining 2/3 doesn't!

Now, I need a bricked unit... and salvage the working touchpanel. Meantime, this tablet will be in its cage...
