daughter dropped phone, daddy had to fix phone. Son dropped phone, daddy had to fix that phone as well. replaced two touch screens and back lids. the first took me two hours, the second phone less than an hour.
the repair went very well. the online instructions had been very helpful. overall the repair was not bad and took me about an hour.
when replacing a touch screen you must be very careful to snake the touch screen ribbon cables through the designated slot. when in place each cable must be of equal length. the smaller of the two cables can bunch up easily resulting in the cable being slightly shorter. if this happen the cable will not reach the mother board connector. pulling on it WILL break it, you need to seat the top side of the screen first. then check the cables are same length before seating the rest of the touch screen. once in place just put back together. ordering the tool kit is helpful, however the supplied Philips driver was not small enough for all the tiny screws.

I bought an old iPhone 4from a friend to use as an iPod. The screen had some dings, which doesn't bother me all that much, but the glass over the rear camera lens was scratched pretty badly. Since I love to use iPhones as cameras, this was a problem.
I ordered the black iPhone 4 CDMA and the pentalobe screwdriver from iFixit, and the repair could not have been easier. The parts came very quickly and worked as advertised.
This is a simple fix- anyone can do it. Don't be afraid to give it a shot.

Purchased the screwdriver to repair a broken back cover on an iPhone 4.
Fixing the iPhone was very easy and quick. Unfortunately, the screwdriver had to be modified prior to use. The tip of the screwdriver was too long and came to too fine of a point to grip the screw.
Very, and I mean VERY, gently grind or file off a small amount of the excess tip. I'd suggest grinding a little and testing the fit and then grinding some more if needed. Be sure to keep the tip square to the grinder.
