My son broke off the end of his headphone inside his iPod Touch. Apple does not cover this under there warranty.
Went very smoothly. I took about an hour and a half to do the project. My son was really happy that he could how listen to his iPod.
Read the directions very carefully. Some times the directions are not perfectly clear. At that time stop and read them again. The directions did mention how to glue the screen back on the body of the iPod. It fits very snug and I found that a few small drops of model car glue did the trick.

Headphone jack was just about dead and I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars to replace iTouch. Nearest place that does repairs is over 300 miles away. Give it a shot I say.
Everything went perfectly except for the part where I removed the EMI shield. Like many others the ribbon cable to the volume control broke. Solder work is where I draw the line, with four solder points this one goes to the shop.
I think that had I pried the EMI shield from the camera end toward the home button the glue would not have caused the ribbon cable to break. The force would have followed the direction of the cable and the cables limited strength would have been reinforced.

Connection on headphone jack deteriorated over time until I could only hear a whisper of audio.
Went well. Ordered the parts I needed and since it was my first time doing anything of this nature, took it slow and had no problems.
The instructions were fine. Didn't feel it was necessary to remove the bronze tap stuff, just flip the flap over and you're gold.
Also, get an ice cube tray and put the screws in in the order of groups you pulled them out, then reverse when putting them back in. These things are TINY. Would have been nice to have a magnetized screw driver tip for this repair. Difficult to get the screw back in for the headphone jack.

The tip of my old headphones broke in the jack and I tried getting them out after watching YouTube videos that showed how to using super glue and q-tip. I accidentally glued the piece in forcing me to replace the part if I ever wanted to listen to music again.
The repair went well with no mistakes and son after i started I was listening to my music again.
Go slow and be careful! You might tear a few ribbon cables if you're not.

Quality Apple workmanship [cough] caused my headphone jack to stop outputting sound. I was forced to ride around in the car with the speaker on high while holding the Touch near my ear.
I've seen snowflakes bigger than the screws that hold this thing together. Also, reattaching the LCD cable to the logic board (the last step before re-sealing your Touch) is much more challenging that the guide would have you believe. Keep an extra supply of patience on hand for this step.
