My Problem

My husband dropped his phone and shattered his screen. No other choice but to fix it myself.

My Fix

The iSclack tool was awesome. I'm going to repair a friend's phone, so I bought it. Took 1.5 hours start to finish, including my adhesive melting problem. I almost gave up then came up with a solution. I tore the copper shield that holds the ear piece connection set on. It did not mess up the repair.

My Advice

For melting the adhesive, if you don't have a special heat tool as shown in the tutorial, use a cloth bag filled with dried peas. Microwave the bag for 3 min and set on phone to release adhesive. Give it at least 2 minutes of heat. Be super careful peeling off the copper heat shield. That tore on me even though I was pretty careful. It did not interfere with the repair though- I just ignored it and stuck it back together during reassembly. Use a piece of paper with double sided tape to hold the screws in place in numbered squares that correspond with the tutorial. It was very helpful during reassembly. I purposely chose a white screen and kept the black home button for my repair. He had a black screen before.

My Problem

The Battery was showing signs of dying. Only stayed charged for an hour or two

My Fix

With the iSclack it went really well. Super easy to get into. And not much needed to come apart. But the battery took the longest to get it unglues from the back of the device. Like 10 mins kinda unglued.

My Advice

Try and warm up the glue if possible. Using the iopener kit. If not just go slow and be paitent. As there are cables under that battery.

My Problem

My girlfriend shattered the screen of her iPhone.

My Fix

Shattered screens are usually hard to remove, but using the adhesive strip with the islack worked perfectly.

My Advice

If you plan on fixing cellphones, having an Islak makes life easier.

My Problem

iPhone 5 battery was no longer holding its charge. It would die before noon each day.

My Fix

The repair went very smooth, watched the instructional video. Battery was swapped out within 10 minutes and phone works perfectly. LOVE the iSclack!!

My Advice

My Problem

After having cases on my iPhones dating back to the 3G, I bought the 6 and thought "The otter box on this is way too bulky. Maybe I'll try one of those thinner cases.." Thinner case did not save my phone when it was knocked off the bed of my truck. Glass on the screen was shattered and was randomly slicing my fingers reminding me how dumb it was to not have a good case or screen protector.

My Fix

Repair went off without a hitch. The iSclack worked great opening the display assembly from the case. The repair guides were well written and walked through each step.

My Advice

Slow and steady is the way to go with everything. Take your time and make sure you get the cables disconnected and reconnected properly. Check out your replacement before assembly and make sure you have all the protective films removed before being stuck in the middle of your project.

My Problem

Broken glass

My Fix

It went very well. Everything worked on the phone after the repair. But it was indeed time consuming due to rather complicated assembly around the front camera and hone button.

Had to be really careful and gentle in order not to breake any ribbon cables. I also disconnected the battery prior to the reassembly. I think that should be added to the guide. Besides all that im proud to have repaired a very complicated gadget.

My Advice

Disconnect battery prior to reassembly.

My Problem

The battery in my 2 year old iPhone was just not holding a charge any longer. So I turned to iFixit and got the job done myself.

My Fix

Overall the repair was successful but not with out a little struggling. The iSlack didn't work very well. I tried a slow steady pull and a more quick pull but the screen just wouldn't snap out. I finally used my prying tool and with the help of the iSlack got the screen off.

The directions were terrific! Especially the comments about what you might encounter. You were right those screws were very, very tiny. This 60 year old had to fall back and get my magnifying glasses out. Once opened the directions got me through the process quickly. The Anti-Static tray was a must for me. It kept the screws and parts in order and made for an excellent reassembly. When put back together and turned back on I got those white lines across my screen. The directions told me exactly what to do to fix it, and after a quick opening (iSlack worked well this time), I repositioned the screen cable and was in business. Thanks for the help and the detailed directions. For a fist time job I couldn't be happier. Just need to look around my house and see what else I have that needs to be taken apart! ;)

My Advice

If you use the iSlack just be patient. Even if it doesn't pop the screen right off it certainly helps a great deal if you have to do a little prying. Definatly get the anti-static tray or the magnetic mat; the screws are wicked small.
