iPad screen was shattered
I was able to remove the iPad with the help of the iFIXIT Kit. it was the dented corner that made it more difficult. I was able to push the metal back but not completely as the corners started to split the metal. I then took a Dremel and smoothed out the corners and lowered edges to allow the glass to fit. its now a 100% fit just one corner that is a bit more raised but 100% sealed. The dremel also worked to polish out the dented corners.
The biggest issue really was the Home Button cable.
tools needed: fixit parts, iFixit repair kit, watch the videos, a can of compressed air, a Dremel. (a bag of swear words and lots of patients)
