ipad went into the water during a boat race. would boot but screen was grayed out
many small pieces and screws, otherwise ok
iPad Mini LCD was only showing a white line with no picture, but the hardware could be seen by the computer.
Repair took a long time and was tedious...The iOpener pack was not getting hot enough to loosen the glue so i had to repeat the softening process several times, besides that the repair went well.
Use a heat gun to loosen adhesive to make it easier and make sure you don't pull to hard on the digitizer or it will crack easily. Get the ifixit Jimmy it works great for the tough tight places.
The battery had developed bad cells and wouldn't hold a charge for more than a minute or so. The iPad mini was otherwise intact so it made sense to try and replace the battery.
There was a time after removing the LCD that the instructions weren't super clear about separating the LCD from some tape (but that could just be my special brain) but it otherwise went without a hitch.
Take your time, don't get frustrated, and don't force things and you'll do fine =]
