The ultimate device opener

Words are powerful—and Jimmy’s got an extensive vocabulary: slide, cut, twist, poke, slice, part, uproot, divide, lift, dissect, separate, and pry. Whatever your word for opening up an electronic device, he can do it.

  • Jimmy's high-quality steel blade easily slips between the tightest gaps in the toughest devices.
  • The ergonomic handle and flexible steel blade make it easy to "jimmy" devices open — with the nimble precision of a repair surgeon’s scalpel.

My Problem

My iPod has been my companion for years. It holds all of my music in one place and provides the cheesiest games for when one is in a pinch (saved me so many times). The headphone jack started to play only in mono. This was no good, I took it to Apple, who was kind enough to tell me that my product w . . .

My Problem

After checking the Microsoft website and finding out if I send in my tablet(in good shape) with $320 They will send me back a refurbished one. (EBay has them for $99.) I decided to take it apart what the heck it doesn't work anyway. The charger seemed to emit 12 volts. I ordered tools and a charging . . .

My Problem

After troubleshooting SOOO MANY THINGS - it was clear that the issue was isolated to the fan. It sounded like, based on all other forums I had read, that the ball bearing in the fan had run it's course and the least expensive route (short of shooting some silicone lubricant into the fan) was to rep . . .

My Problem

I used the Jimmy and Metal Spudger Set to remove the Glass from a Samsung S3.

My Fix

unfortunately the Cracks in the glass where all the way through the LCD, the the tools worked great. The Jimmy as used almost exclusively.

My Advice

My Problem

My sons battery couldn't hold a load, battery would drain in 20 min , and once plugged it would show nearly a full charge.

My Fix

My Fix

I'm not a very handyman type person. My alternative to fixing it myself was to find someone else to do it, or recycle the device. I checked two repair places; neither one would work on . . .

My Problem

You have to be able to fix anything that comes into the repair shop, that why I decided to buy the Pro Tech Toolkit from ifixit. I was so excited when this came in the mail.

My Fix

Everything went well, I was able to work on any device in the shop. I only had the tool kit for day before I accidentally left . . .

My Problem

I'm hard on phones and iPads. I can't even wear a watch. It ends up scratched, dented or in pieces within 6 months.

My Fix

It's the second time for the iPad mini digitizer so it was much easier. First time for the phone and that was simple too.

My Advice

The one recommendation I have is read the step by step instruc . . .

My Problem

For years the Super Drive in my Macbook pro did not work so it was litterally wasting space. Instead of just replacing the Super Drive I decided to go a more extravagant route and install a second drive (for cost reasons the second drive is a SSHD or Hybrid) . I also wanted to upgrade the traditio . . .
