Hello, I found this post by searching for a new screen for my sons ipod, I was able to seperate the lcd from the digitizer in about 30 seconds. I used a little flat head screwdriver. i noticed on the outside edge of the lcd screen are 5 places that appear to be tabs, (they are not tabs, they hold the lcd to the backing) i slid the tip of the screwdriver under each of these "tabs" and twisted and they raised up. they are located on the outside of each of the 4 corners and one on the middle of one of th sides. After i did that I just slid the screwdriver in just a little bit and lifted, it comes off just like the front cover, it has a light adhesive holding it on but it comes off pretty easy. Hope this helps somebody.
