The desire to touch another's face is as instinctual as pummeling your landlord's nephew is brazen. Since time began, man has sought opportunities to smear mascara, pinch cheeks, and steal noses. Regrettably, this instinct has also translated to the abuse of millions of clocks, and the cracking of thousands of iPod Touches.

Give your 3rd Gen iPod Touch the chance to face the world again with our front panel assembly. This assembly includes the touchscreen glass, integrated digitizer, metal frame, and home button.

NOTE: This part is only compatible with model A1318 iPod Touches. If your iPod Touch is model A1288 you should purchase an iPod Touch Gen 2 Front Panel Assembly.

My Problem

I was cleaning the dust out from the cover of my iPod touch and used the assembly guide to remove my previous front panel. Unfortunately, I didn't go through all the proper steps and failed to remove the touch screen ribbon cable. I guess i under-estimated the true fagility of that cable and it ripp . . .

My Problem

Cracked/Shattered IPod Front Panel Touchscreen - Seemed a shame to throw-away the bulk of a still-working tool. As the total cost of sending it to a qualified repair shop reached 33% of the cost of replacement, alternatively repairing it at home for about half that cost seemed appropriate.

My Problem

My daughter, off to college, downloaded some software to her iPod to help her keep up her workout routine. It had something to do with running around campus, making believe that zombies were chasing you, with the iPod telling you what to do. Well, that's all well and good, except if you're carrying . . .
