Easier than it looks but be patient!

iPod Touch 4th Generation

iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Panel Replacement

Very difficult

My Problem

Screen shattered.

My Fix

Repair went well using the guides. Keep the screws in order! The ribbon cable you connect on the underside of the logic board is tricky but it WILL snap into place, be patient. The adhesive templates can be ambiguous; note that the small square cut outs are removed to make holes to avoid covering screws and components.

My Advice

When pressing the screen back into the unit, do not press too hard. You run the risk of damaging a portion of the screen. If you are lined up and you press firmly, the adhesive will do the rest, so be sure to scrape off the old stuff and install the new adhesive properly.
