Anet 12864 LCD upgrade

I've purchased the "anet" branded 12864 upgrade on Amazon ... UTF8&psc=1. I have the newer Anet A8 from April 18 with standard board. Before installing it, I'm assuming both LCD connectors (from the 12864) are plugged into the mobo. I also have the BLtouch sensor which is using one of the PINS on the 2nd port for grounding. Which other pins can I use for grounding? Also, is this LCD display just plug and reflash marlin with REPRAP_DISCOUNT_SMART_CONTROLLER in Configuration.h and //comment out the 5 button lcd (whatever it's called in marlin). Or, do I have to have a RAMPs board to install it?

I would think that would use the ANET_FULL_GRAPHICS_LCD in configuration.h

The reprap discount controllers , you generally have to plug both cables in BACKWARDS.

With this one I don't know if that's the case or not.
You would think since it is Anet branded, the cables would be correct.
If it ain't broke,
Just keep tryin' to fix it!
