I dropped my ipod multiple times and the glass shattered. I ordered the glass replacement and the plastic tools.
I was shocked at how easy it was. I did not have to take the ipod apart to replace the glass.
I removed some of the glass by using a small piece of duct tape. I taped the glass and then by pulling it off slowly some of the shards came off on the tape. By doing that it allowed me to use the tools to carefully scrap the edges to get the remaining glass off and the adhesive. That way you don't have to take apart the top end of your ipod. Then simply take of the protective plastic and the adhesive sticker on the back (the adhesive should only be around the small edges) and push it in. Easy and it looks brand new!

No problems. Didn't have to remove the end of the pod as I could prise the glass out in pieces.
Replacement glass fitted without issue. Looks great.
Plastic opening tools come in pairs. Didn't know this, ordered three and got six. I suppose they'll eventually come in handy.

Daughter dropped iPod nano and broke the glass. after calling Apple ($79 + tax and shipping), and checking other repair options, I decided to use ifixit to order the parts and used their great online information to give it a shot.
Repair took approximately 5 minutes. Most of the time spent pulling off the borken shards of glass. I did not need to disassemble the ipod to fixit. Take special care to remove all the debris and adhesive from the unit prior to placing the new. The only concern that popped up was the absence of information on how to prep the new glass, what to remove from the glass, what to leave etc. But if you take you time, it's turns out to be pretty fool proof and worked very well.
The glass comes with scratch protection sheet on the outfacing side. The side of the glass that goes towards the unit has backing to protect the adhesive and a full face adhesive sheet. Remove both one at a time. The pertinent part of the adhesive will remain around the outer edge of the glass.

Dropped off the couch and shattered the screen.
Easier than I throughout. The repair manual from this site which I used as reference was easy to follow.
I have repaired severeal iPhones using this site I love the reference repair manuals.
This is the first order from ifixit store and I'm very happy, it arrived 4 days earlier than expected. Thanks! :-)

In a unlucky movement my iPod fell down and the glass shattered.
The Repair went perfectly, I was very careful, however I scratched the screen with a piece of the broken glass, a pity.
Be very careful. It's very important haven't any hurry, you must be patient, any mistake could ruin everything.
