Is Replacing the Adhesive on the Stainless Steel Back Necessary?
I had recently dropped my iPod Touch 4th Gen. 32GB on concrete, denting in the top left corner backplate and cracking and bending in the plastic bezel which cracked the glass leaving a small opening near the corner of the glass.
I would love to be able to fix this myself but I am trying to figure out if replacing the entire backplate is necessary for replacing the screen assembly. Since it seems the bent backplate and cracked bezel would prevent the screen assembly from fitting in place.
Would it be possible to try and bend the back plate back a little so the screen would fit?
Which leads to my main question, if the backplate would need to be replaced would I need to replace the adhesive that holds some of the parts to the backplate? Such as the battery, volume/power ribbon cable and any others I may have left out.
And if so, what adhesive would I use? Something similar to the adhesive strips for mounting the screen assembly back on?
Hope someone can help!
Is this a good question?
