My Problem

The screen broke when it fell off a table onto a ceramic tile floor

My Fix

The repair went decent. It was my first time taking apart an iPad and truthfully the screen was a pain to take off, especially given that it was in a ton of different pieces. Ended up cutting through the wifi antenna in the disassembly. Purchased a replacement for $4 from Amazon..... And it was faulty. Purchased a reconditioned wifi antenna from fixit.com and it worked perfectly. Put everything back together and it's worked great ever since then.

My Advice

Don't cut through the wifi antenna. And if you do spend the extra $8 for a good replacement

My Problem

The screen was completely shattered.

My Fix

Went pretty well. It took a long time (probably 4 hours), but it was my first time doing it. I think I could do it quicker if I had to do it again. (Fingers crossed; hope I don't have to.)

My Advice

Take your time, no need to rush it and damage any other components. Watch a couple videos online to see what it looks like, but I suggest following instructions here. If your glass is badly shattered be sure to use packing tape to hold it together.

My Problem

iPad 4 fell over a couple of weeks ago and cracked the screen. The crackage wasn't tooooo bad but irritated me every time I looked at it, and I read that these things only get worse and harder to fix, so decided to bite the bullet and do it sooner rather than later.

My Fix

The pack arrived beautifully laid out, which made locating and accessing everything simple. When I saw everything there, I was feeling rather confident that this would go easily and I'd soon have a working iPad. Well, one half of that turned out to be true...

First moment of panic was when the "plastic opening tool" with its wedged edge snapped as I was sticking it into the side of the iPad. Thankfully it had done its job just enough so that I could stick one of the opening picks in there to continue its work.

I put tape over the screen like the guide suggests, hoping that would be able to contain the crackage - but unfortunately everything fell completely to pieces (literally) when it came time to pull the cover glass off the iPad, and I found myself scraping shards of sticky cover glass off the inside of the iPad for a heart attack inducing couple of hours until I was ready to pull the new cover glass out of its bubblewrap.

Digitiser cable went in no trouble, but the home button cable was a different story. That tiny little thing just WOULD NOT go into the logic board with the aluminium lip of the iPad in the way, so as it turned out I had to pull the logic board out to get it at the right angle. This was almost cause for another heart attack...

Finally, with all cables connected, I decided I'd try to turn the iPad on before I put it all back together to be sure I hadn't left anything out. To my amazement, it started first time and everything seemed to be working. Phewph!

But I wasn't out of the woods yet, I still had to stick the new cover glass and digitiser down without damaging anything else (I was terrified of cracking the new one as I installed it...). Only one hitch here, and that was that you need to be sure to push the digitiser cable down inside the iPad before you start putting the cover glass back down, as otherwise there's not enough room to stick it down.

Ultimately, the satisfaction I got from successfully repairing my iPad myself was incredible. The experience boosted my confidence to do things like this in the future, and save a bit of money along the way. :)

My Advice

Go VERY slowly, and know that your slightly cracked panel will turn into a zillion shards very very quickly. I wish I'd laid down some newspaper before I started - still vacuuming up bits of sticky black glass.

Also, don't be afraid to go a little bit further to ensure that you do it right. For example, inserting the home button cable doesn't technically require the removal of the logic board, but in order to install the tiny little thing without risking damaging it (or my sanity), I found it a lot easier to do it that way.

My Problem

Ipad was dropped and the front glass cracked.

My Fix

after finding ifixit.com, I decided to repair the glass screen myself. Ordering the kit was the best decision. It included everything I needed. The screen was more then cracked it was really shattered so removing it took some time, but it was removed. Ipad is back to work, thanks for building the kit!

My Advice

Take it slow, and it will workout.

My Problem

I dropped my iPad several months ago and it landed in the bottom left corner and unfortunately slightly crushed a small piece of the glass in that corner. Actually no big deal as it was hardly noticeable and did not affect the iPad operation. However overtime due to holding the iPad and applying pressure in that area, large cracks started to radiate out across the screen from that original damage area,something had to be done. As it was a 64gb gsm system and replacement was expensive and the iPad still worked well, there had to be a better answer....... And then I stumbled on your site and associated YouTube videos that made it seem easy...... And you know what....it was! Spend $100 and an hour or so instead of $900 an easy decision!

My Fix

Overall very well and as I expected. System works perfectly and looks new! Shattered and cracked glass makes the job take a lot longer to remove the old.

The repair kit coming pre-taped with home button and camera mount saves a great deal of time....Thank You

My Advice

Your instructions are not updated to reflect that the kits are pre-taped with mounts installed.

Plastic blue tools are worthless as they bend and get cut by glass and could not make initial lift of the glass to start the process, I switched to a metal tool ( thin knife blade ) for initial penetration.

No twesers in kit and I didn't have a pair at home. Tough to do without them.

Overall a great value and some fun to work on. Thanks!

My Problem

screen cracked when devices were dropped.

My Fix

excellent repair, instructions sent along and knowing repair staff are on stand by was awesome.

My Advice

I would recommend ifixit to anyone techy or not , they will help with your repairs and get you the correct parts for repair. Excellent customer service, shipping was outstanding items arrived very quickly, products were all in stock.

My Problem

We bought an iPad for my nephew and debated on buying Applecare, but didn't. Long story short... I'm buying a new screen.

And.. I will add, even if I had AppleCare, I still saved some dough!!

My Fix

The tutorials are very helpful. Just use patience!! The screen was pretty damaged, but we were able to save the iPad!

My Advice

Please follow the instructions, have plenty of patience and take your time. MOST IMPORTANTLY - USE SAFETY GLASSES, AND GLOVES IF NEEDED!

My Problem

4th Gen IPAD screen was cracked and then spider webbed later. Should have fixed it before it spider webbed.

My Fix

Excellent repair guide, had it fixed in about 2 hours, went without a hitch. Hardest part was removing the shattered bits of glass.

My Advice

If your screen is only hairline cracked, repair it before it spider webs or it gets way more difficult.

My Problem

The screen of iPad4-WiFi was broken into pieces.

My Fix

The most dirty job is to remove the broken front panel first. i used heat-gun (did not have a chance to try iopener) and iSasemo (is really useful to me). Be careful the scattered glass which can hurt your hands easily. The repair instruction is clear enough to follow. The only pity thing is that the home button doesn't work even after double checking the connection to logic board.

My Advice

The heat flow from heat gun may cause drain out for battery. Does anyone have the same experience?

My Problem

A few days ago, I lost the battle against gravity. Unfortunately, my brand new iPad 4 was the casualty. It fell flat on its screen which shattered into a million little pieces.

My Fix

Although it was a little bit daunting, the hardest part was getting the broken screen off because of all the little pieces being stuck to the gasket. But after that task, putting everything back together was surprisingly quick-going if not simple.

I was a little scared after I completed the repair as the iPad did not power up right away. After a simple internet search, I found that I had to do a hard reset of the machine. Now it works perfectly!

My Advice

1) Getting the broken screen off is the hardest and longest task. A lot of patience is required.

2) Make sure to do a hard reset after completing the repair because the iPad will not power up after a repair in the normal manner. Neither will it begin charging.
