THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for saving me from a $600 Apple Store repair bill! The instructions were excellent and I felt very comfortable working my way through the repair.
I lucked out getting the glass off. I heated the upper right corner until it was warm to the touch, attached the suction cup and... pop. The glass came off instantly in one piece. Unfortunately, I broke it trying to get the camera bracket off, but it looked like shite after being knocked around for seven years and I was planning on replacing it anyway. I also replaced the LVDS cable along with the LCD and bezel. The display looks as good as the day I took it home from the Apple Store back in 2008.
I'm giddy that I have my laptop back. Tablets are all the rage nowadays, but they really do have their limitations. You need a proper keyboard to do any serious work.
Thanks tons for putting out these repair guides and the great tools.
