Did I kill it?
Tried my first battery replacement or my 3rd Gen iPod Touch. Completely destroyed the plastic edge and four plastic prying tools trying to get the screen off. The rest of the disassembly went fine including the removal of the battery terminal with the soldering iron. Put on the new battery and reassembled, Plugged it in and I get the low battery icon, didn't charge overnight.
Is this a good question?
