1 - 2 hours
I was fixing it for a student that wanted his/her IPad fix.
The repair went ok, it took around Three hours to repair. I really have to take time to heat the glass to remove. So I don't break the glass, if you do break the grass. you just might scratch the surface of the LCD screen.
you will need the definitely tools to remove the glass. Plastic Opening Tools, which you will need a lot of them. one isn't just enough, get extra just in case. Heavy duty Spudger works great, when removing connectors. didn't really need the metal spudger set, but I got it anyway. maybe use it on something else. you will definitely need a precision tweezers set, because the screws are so small. you will need plastic cards and opening picks. don't forget to get a screw driver small enough for those small screws, there are tiny. oh yeah, be careful lifting the screen. the screen is in perfect condition when it arrive. I will buy I fix again, if you are ordering from Canada, you will pay duty fee. my cost around 49.99 duty fee, plus the shipping I have to pay about 30.00 bucks. plus I didn't really need a suction cup. you can use a heat gun, or that iopener thing. I have use a heat gun which was dewalt.
