I was hired as the person to be in charge of Maintenance and Management of our school district's 1:1 Chromebook Initiative.
These 2 kits and the Magnetic Mat have proven to be a god send as I have a way to pry the cases open with out damaging the clips that hold it together. Fingers don't get pinched and also don't tend to lend themselves easily to getting things open!
Take your time! Slow and steady will win the race.

It's the line of work I do, i fix mobile, computers, laptops, tablets etc etc. To me it isn't one job, but a series of jobs.
They always go great, I have tons of experience in doing these types of repairs, so to me the right tool is more important than any guide. The tools ifixit sells are amazing quality.
Just keep at it, i've been doing it for a little over two years now, at first it's intimidating because how so small the components in most mobile/computer
Never rush anything, if it fights you look for a screw, if you can't find any; use a soft prying tool or a heat gun to loosen the glue.
In my experience so far, most things are held together with screws (various types), from hex, to torq, pentalobe, triwing glue and of course clips. Patience is the key to taking apart anything.
If it doesn't feel 'right' coming apart, never force it. That's how you break things, especially in cases like the HTC One (held together by force and clips).
Worse case scenario there's hundreds of guides on sites like this to help you dismantle or repair devices. Of course if you just follow things through and are thorough and careful, you can take apart anything without a guide necessary : )

You don't need to take the front screen off. I just held the screen at 90 deg to the phone with cable connected. Unscrewed the battery connection removed the battery and replace with new one and I was done all within five minutes. But I love your videos of all the repairs - keep up the great work. Without you I would be lost.

The left fan in my 2009 MacBook Pro became so loud, and the noise so constant, that for the first time ever I was dreading every time I turned on my Mac. I dealt with this annoyance for well over a year, before I finally broke down and decided to fix it myself.
The repair couldn't have been easier, and I'm so exponentially happier now using my Mac in complete silence, that I'm angry at myself that I waited so long to make the fix.
If there's was one thing I wish I knew beforehand, it would be just how easy a fix this is. Also, that the new fan wouldn't simply be quieter, it would be silent. A fantastic improvement!

My first release PS3 (the fat model) was constantly running the fan loudly while watching netflix so I decided to take it apart and give it a good cleaning but my current selection of screwdrivers couldn't reach down to all the screws well and it made the job very difficult.
With the pro tech screwdrivers and an ifixit teardown guide the second attempt went easy as you could ask for. They performed well and were very comfortable.
Be gentle when removing the rubber cover of the lid retaining screw, it likes to tear.

My co-workers iPhone 5s was drop during a shoot and we cannot claim it for insurance so we decided to fix it on our own, since we cannot find a decent shop to do the repairs.
first i have reviewed iFixit's teardown of iPhone 5s then i did the repair with the help of the guide everything went very well.
if ever you need parts and tools for your device repairs then its iFixit is the place.

Substitute white case with blue one
Very difficult. No drink coffee, no sex, only concentration and firm hand to do the work! :-).
A lot of gluey things to remove.
I realized to need new glasses...
I will find very useful if you show also the direction of the movement to remove some difficult part, i.e. some jpg in sequence or some animated gif

I splashed the tiniest splash of hard cider from a bottle I almost knocked over but grabbed at the last moment. The laptop seemed fine... until about 12 hours later, when it ran out of battery. Dead, dead.
I got the clue it might be the MagSafe board from a few blog posts here and there, I took the whole thing apart using ifixit.com's excellent slideshow how-tos; I gave every bit of the circuit boards a toothbrush bath in rubbing alcohol; I swapped out the MagSafe board... it's alive! Probably saved me $600. And while I was swapping the drives between this and my older laptop, I accidentally fixed that one's overheating problem! (I'll be ordering a new internal AirPort card soon). Thanks, IFIXIT! I fixed it!
Always use a sippy cup. Always.
