My Problem

My iphone 6 screen was broken and i bought from another seller and it appeared to be of poor quality so i decided to buy from ifixit and it went all well

My Fix

Smooth. I had the islack which works like a charm. Easy to open the iphone

My Advice

Buy from reliable sources like ifixit

My Problem

Mac support diagnosed a crashed hard drive, I decided to investigate and attempt to repair. My initial plan was to replace it with a different Windows based laptop hard drive then format it using the Mac drive tools. Unfortunately the Mac disk utility did not register the new drive, let alone allow me to format. Even more curiously, the original hard drive that was diagnosed as "crashed" was fine after I formatted it on my Windows desktop. Yet, still would not read on the Mac.

My Fix

Poorly due to Macintosh.

My Advice

PC Master Race

My Problem

My daughter dropped her iPod, denting the corner and shattering the screen.

My Fix

Used the iFixit guide for this repair and ordered the replacement front panel assembly. I took my time and reviewed the guide steps multiple times. Once I got the broken panel off, I took a break and basked in my success thus far. Installing the new assembly went smoothly.

The only two downsides were 1) the home button did not work post-repair (or maybe it was already a problem?). Luckily the iPod "assistant" function was on, so the Home functionality still lives. 2) The drop dented the metal corner of the case. The new glass didn't want to easly fit within the case. But some additional adhesive and overnight gentle pressure fit things together.

My Advice

1. Take your time.

2. Read, re-read, and review the guide as you go along.

3. Be gentle. The ribbon cables and micro connectors are delicate.

4. The wifi antenna in the upper left corner is held by a screw and a foam adhesive pad. The adhesive pad became unstuck or torn. But after reassembly, wifi works fine.

5. The doublesided tape strips provided by the kit were a bit lacking. I carefully used a very small bit of silicon adhesive glue along the outer edge.

My Problem

The battery in my Pokemon Emerald GBA game was dead.

My Fix

I unscrewed the screw that holds the game's cover in place and then used a knife to pry the contacts from the dead battery. This took some effort as the contacts did not want to let go. I finally got the battery out and inserted the new battery. The new battery was quite a bit bigger than the old battery but it still fit. The cartridge does bulge a bit now, but it still fits in the console and still works. It also no longer puts up the warning that the internal battery is dead.

My Advice

The only thing I would say to anyone attempting this style of repair is to make sure you have plenty of light.

My Problem

With this bundled purchase I was able to complete multiple cellular repair projects, I'm not done with buying tools but for now, i'm satisfied with my capabilities thanks to iFixit's tool supply.

My Fix

Went great, able to finish it quickly and revived a dead iPhone 3G, and a busted digitzer on a 5.

My Advice

Once again, you guys know more than me. I can't advise anything lol - Oh but i'd like it if you could make your coupon system accept more than 2 uses with one code. That's a bit disappointing.

My Problem

... is the Multi Tool Roll does not come in fashion colors. I would reorder as soon as I knew I could get a green one

My Problem

I got a business and decided to start repair iphone... saw your excellent guides and wanted the same tools as you used.

Maybe an updated screw-pdf, I missed one "circle" for a screw.
