  • iPhone 4 Rear Panel Replacement

    I've changed some iPod screens as well and that has been the least pleasant experience so far. Glue and the main connector that has to be unwrapped and connected from the rear where you have no feel or control where it belongs.

    iPhone repair is complex, but doable and has very few "traps".

  • iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Panel Replacement

    That was no fun! The iPhone 3G was a piece of cake, compared with this iPod. Especially when the front glass is cracked, it takes ages to get rid of all that glue. I hope I'll never have to do that again. Should be set to "difficult" at least.

    After the replacement, the screen was pure white! Luckily, a total reset could fix that. I really was afraid I broke one of the flex cables.

  • iPhone 4 Logic Board Replacement

    The smallest screw below the Digitizer connector is held by a tiny nut which is fixed below the EMI shield. Beware because this thing can get loose easily.

  • iPhone 4 Logic Board Replacement

    Yes, that belongs to the yellow screw and is (badly) glued to the motherboard. You'll need very thin pliers to place and fix the nut while reassembling.

  • MacBook Unibody Model A1278 Optical Drive Replacement

    This step is not necessary. Drive can be released without removing the screws.
