Needed to replace iPhone 4 battery and also put on the revelation back cover.
The experience went well. The battery was indeed stuck down with much adhesive, so keep prying and it comes out. The tools were useful. All in all a good experience.
It's not hard really. Just keep prying at the battery!

We had a student spill a glass of milk on top of one of our 1 to 1 MacBook Air Computers.
We were able to take the computer apart with the Pentalobe screwdriver and clean up all of the milk.
I purchased the best version of the screwdriver. I find the quality of it to be great and I am hoping that it will last us through several repairs. Never buy cheap tools. ;)

Would not turn on.
Replaced power unit. Powers up and works. Every once I'm awhile when jostled slightly it shuts off still though.
Unplugging, removing battery and givin 10 minutes it will start again. No idea why.
Be methodical and don't rush this one. Its nearly a complete tear down. If one one follows the instructions and has a good set of T5-T10 drivers I think it's possible an 8 year old MIGHT be able to do it.

There was a hazy spot in the center of some pictures. It seemed to be focus related. I could see a white spot that appeared to be on the inside of the outer lens. The instructions said I needed a very small "star" screwdriver for the lens screws.
The repair went perfectly. The instructions have great pictures (http://www.wikihow.com/Disassemble-the-L...) and except for the "star" screwdriver reference were perfect. It turns out the screws are Phillips or JIS (too small to tell) not Torx or pentalobe. So, while I did not need the 54 bit driver kit (I already had a small Phillips head driver) I am now ready to fix my iPhone, iPad, TomTom, laptop or any other electronic marvel I care to dissemble. The metal Spudger set made the job much easier than the dull paring knife I used to use to pry things apart.
1. Do not believe the words in the repair instructions. Look at the pictures carefully. The picture clearly showed a "x" screw head not a "star".
2. The proper tools make every job easier.

No one issue for these items.. Just treating myself..
With iFixit on my side, Great!
I'm coming up on 25 years in the computer industry and thought it was time that I treated myself to a nice set of tools instead of the usual hodge podge collection that i've acquired over the years. Until now I've either made the tool I needed or adapted another tool and repurposed it for my uses. I thought it would be a nice treat to have a nice new toolset that all went neatly into a package. I'm so happy with the new tools (I slept with them under my pillow for the first few nights shhh) Very high quality and I look forward to expanding and upgrading till I've got the mother load. I have never bought a set and considering my time-in the business really can't believe it hadn't occurred to me to do so. I was very happy with the selection and service. It arrived in a timely manner and was elated with this follow up email. I'm a long time fan of iFixit and use you solely for repairs parts.You always have the first guide available and I trust your guides to lead me with everything that I do. Even if it's something i'm familiar with I'll still navigate to your site just to see if there's a new trick or something that may have been updated. I used to cringe when I had to open something new and was unsure how it came apart or better yet, goes back together. With you by my side I fear NO job and walk with the confidence to repair anything.
I truly believe you get what you pay for. On days I've not been available, orders were placed with other (Lesser quality) vendors and I always find myself having to replace said part again for lack of quality. I recommend you to any and everyone that asks (and they ask a lot). keep up the good work and i'm sure someone will be dropping their device right around the corner. :) Happy repairing!

Crappy battery life on my 1.5 year old 4S. There was some talk about the current ios being a power drain. I tried all the remedial software steps to no avail. Decided to try a new battery.
Went fine! I had the expected problem with the little black grounding clip but was prepared to deal with it. The photos were soooo helpful!
It works! Battery life better and a fine sense of accomplishment :-) Might be nice to describe or photograph in detail how that black grounding clip is supposed to sit. The screws are really tiny.

I received a non working iPod Video and decided to see if I could repair it. It would not stay charged and it wouldn't reformat. I thought I would see about replacing the battery and get it working again.
I looked online and found a good video on taking the iPod apart but needed the right tools. After taking the unit apart I found that the mainboard was damaged. I think the iPod had been dropped.
Getting the right tools to take the iPod apart was essential. I have a new battery to replace the old one and I'm currently waiting for a new mainboard to arrive. Will complete the repair and test the unit when I receive the mainboard. I've never worked on an iPod before and this has shown me that with the proper instruction and the proper tools I would be willing to try another one. Maybe buy used ones that need repair and give them to family and friends as gifts.
