Front glass all cracked
Removing glass was a ##&&% and took long coming off a small piece at a time. Now that I did once it would be simple if had to do again
Safety glasses a must
These come pre-installed on the front panel
My daughter dropped the iPad.
Awesome. Had originally replaced it with a cheaper glass digitizer and my daughter dropped it and cracked it again. With all the included goodies I had it opened up in about 8 minutes.
Take your time, read through the guide before taking the unit apart and then go all in . . .
3 foot drop onto hardwood floor completely shattered the glass.
I followed the directions for the most part. Due to the sheer amount of damage I didn't heat the adhesive for fear of overheating LCD or some other component. I'm not sure if this is an acual concern, but basically the glass was off othe . . .
After three years, my self-described clumsy wife finally dropped her iPad 4 the right way and shattered the glass screen.
The repair was super hairy at first--as it happens, the exact spot where the guide tells you to start prying open the front panels is where my iPad's screen was utterly shattered. . . .

The Screen Was shattered
THe repair was successful but the iOpener was not as useful as expected. Essentially it did not warm the glue of the iPad enough to remove the screen well. If doing it again I would likely use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the iPad more and loosen the glue rather than th . . .
The screen had multiple cracks & the Home button was missing. Everything else worked fine, though.
Fairly smoothly with a couple rough spots:
1. Getting the first pick under the glass took a lot more force than I expected. I ended-up being patient and having to heat the area several times as I tried . . .
My wife dropped it (AGAIN!)
This time resulted in a long diagonal crack across the screen.
Having a strong background in computer repair, I decided that this time I would replace the screen instead of spending 6X the parts cost on a repair shop doing the work. So, having examined the damage, I purcha . . .
