My Problem

My wife broken the screen on her iPad. After we had it fixed, the iPad didn't do wifi very well. The shop damaged the wifi antenna but claimed it couldn't possibly be them.

My Fix

I ordered a new antenna from another place and it didn't work. Ordered another wifi antenna from you and after I installed it, the wifi works great.

My Advice

Use the internet to obtain info and with a little skill and a lot of patience, you can do this repair

My Problem

Cracked screen.

My Fix

All went well!

My Advice

None.

My Problem

Broke the antenna while removing the glass.

My Fix

It went well. Since the glass was already removed, the hard part (in my opinion) was already done. after re-assembly, I had to reconnect the digitizer cable again because it wasn't getting a good connection.

My Advice

Don't break the antenna when removing the glass! :) I knew it was a possibility but because the screen was broken, the glass was very stubborn in coming up.

My Problem

Broke antenna when replacing front glass.

My Fix

Not done yet.

My Advice

Not yet

My Problem

Broken

My Fix

Not bad

My Advice

I removed the glass with a hobby heat gun. The glass also broke the antenna. After removing the glass, I took the screw out that hold the antenna and pulled up the wire very easy. I cut the wire to the antenna about 1 inch from the iPad . I then put heat shrink on the wire before I solider the new antenna on to the old wire. Then I used the heat gun and on the heat shrink. I reinstalled the antenna with the screws,reinstalled the glass and ribbon tape as they said. Works great,about 20 minutes

My Problem

shattered glass and needed new antenna

My Fix

removing the broken glass was the biggest hurdle

My Advice

i forgot to check ifixit before ordering the replacement glass, so i had to order the adhesive and antenna later from ifixit - would have been better to get the whole kit from here!

My Problem

I shattered the screen on my iPad 2. In the removal of the front panel I tore the wifi antenna. I ordered the antenna and follower the guide to complete the repair.

My Fix

The guide is good, leaving little to the imagination. I had trouble with getting the SIM card out at the start of the process. I was using a paper clip, not the tool. Later in the process I was able to remove the card by removing the clip that keeps the card in place. It is held by a single screw just above the SIM card bracket.

My Advice

Be very careful with the digitizer removal. I thought I was, but I still tore the wifi antenna. To save time consider getting a front panel and an antenna at the same time. It will save you a week. If you can't get the SIM card out at the start of the sequence you can still do it later.

My Problem

Replacing broken front panel digitizer ,

My Fix

Well everything goes well , ifixit step by step tutorial is easy to follow , best part is every steps goes with picture , my repair goes well , at start when I almost done removing the broken digitizer. But in my rush and I damage the wifi cable.

My Advice

My advice is not to rush ! Follow what the manual and expert say.

My Problem

Ipad 2 fell of a table and impacted on the upper right corner causing large spider cracks in the front display but was otherwise still usable.

My Fix

Prepare for a long haul if you have lots of small cracks on the right side where you start the removal process. Total time was about 4.5 hours to soften all the adhesive and pick out the individual shards. Even with taping the display I found the plastic picks would get hung up on each crack. After getting the display off everything was relatively easy.

My Advice

Get the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi Antenna if it is your first time doing this repair. You most likely will damage it without knowing it.

My Problem

In the process of replacing a malfunctioning digitizer screen on my iPad, I was not careful enough and broke the cable of the Wifi antenna while trying to remove the screen. I needed to fix it and I was sure that iFixit would have the repair guide. Sure it did.

My Fix

iFixit repair guide does the repair in 55 steps, which seemed to me a daunting task. Before starting the repair I wanted to have the repair guide at hand, but by mistake, instead of finding it at iFixit website, I searched for it on YouTube. I found a repair guide which I thought was of iFixit (it wasn't), does the same repair with much less steps, essentially, only removing very few components. The repair was fast and simple, it went well, the new WIFI antenna purchased from iFixit works perfectly.

My Advice

I will be eternally grateful to iFixit, for posting so many very useful and educative videos and tutorials. Using iFixit guides I have done several repairs, like replacing the LCD screen of my MacBook Pro, replacing twice the digitizer screen of my iPad2, mounting a second HDD on my MacBook Pro. However, the Wifi antenna repair guide, in my opinion is too long and complex, essentially proposing to remove all components from an iPad, when there is a much simpler way of doing it.

Perhaps, it would be a good idea to update this tutorial.
