First time replacing an iPod screen

by lordharlock

My Problem

The kids iPod has been dropped so many times that the screen finally gave up.

My Fix

Replacing these screens are not very easy to do, due in part to the size of the components you are dealing with. The guide provided with the iFixit app was great in showing me how to remove the display. It failed in providing me with instructions on how to put it back together. I had to look at other websites to figure out the best approach in trying to reconnect the lcd display to the ic board.

My Advice

If your going to provide instructions, make sure the are complete with instructions on how to put the device back together after you have dismantled your device.
