You are right. the adhesive is here: iPod touch (4th Gen) Adhesive Strips
I didn't use a heat gun but this was due to the glass being rather shattered and not just cracked in the corner. The rule of thumb might be to not use excessive force, if you see that you need to use the heat gun or a blow dryer as someone suggested. I also wanted to point out the the adhesive strip just around the edges was exposed and it is rather strong so I was able to pull it around part of the edge which actually helped the glass disengage.
Do not put your soldering on the battery, it will explode if you do.
Perfect instructions. Finally my wife's phone has a new battery. She is so happy.
Any idea if that heatsink can be used for a dual 1.42GHz board or must I get the copper heatsink?
Readers to this post may also want to consider this thermal paste. Very highly rated. It's non conductive so even if it spreads a little more than it should it won't fry your equipment http://www.arctic.ac/eu_en/products/cool...
the dab in the center is know as a pea. See http://www.arcticsilver.com/intel_applic... for recommendations on applying the paste to Intel chips, either a pea or a line depending on CPU.
too expensive? I got mine for less than 5 USD. On a further note, I saw a video on youtube and a chap who use to use Alcohol switch to ArctiClean Thermal Material Remover and now swears by it, he said it was much more effective at dissolving the old thermal paste and in fact he demonstrated the removal process, in a few seconds he wiped it all off clean. Worth the money. It is NOT expensive though, not at all.
According to this list different Intel chips should commit to different applications of thermal paste. Hope this helps.
