Daughter dropped her iPod and the front glass shattered. The iPod worked, but the glass was broken into dozens of pieces.
The repair only took a few minutes. I read the instructions on iFixit, followed them, and had the glass replaced in a few minutes.
Take your time, don't get in a hurry, be very careful removing the cover plate and the tiny screws. ( the screws are set at an angle, note the direction of the screws.. they are not straight into the body of the iPod..)
iFixit has great tools for all kinds of repairs. Use the proper tools and the job goes much better...!!!
My daughter's Ipod fell down the stairway
I went through the repair process easily. The top bezel removal was the only difficult point.
Worth trying the repair !
My daughter dropped her iPod Nano Gen 4 and the glass broke.
The repair went fine. The guide was extremely helpful! Thanks iFixit!
The only thing I would add is this: the glass on my daughter's iPod lifted right out when it was broken. I didn't have to slide the LCD up to get the glass out. BUT....sliding the LCD up is critical to getting the new glass in. This should be noted in the guide. There's no way to get the glass back in without sliding the LCD up. You have to slide the new glass down in the ipod, below the opening, then slide it back up to get the glass to fit in. You can't force it in if the LCD is in place - you'll break it.
