Paso 1 — Removing a Cracked Front Panel ¶
Use your hot iOpener to heat up all four edges of the front panel. Let the iOpener rest on each edge for at least 90 seconds, microwaving for 30 seconds at a time as needed.
Once all of the adhesive is warmed, pick out the edge with the largest uncracked section of glass.
Paso 2 ¶
Work your way around the entire perimeter of the front panel with an opening pick.
Remove the taped-together glass panel from the iPad. Be careful as this will have sharp edges and may drop pieces of glass. Dispose of safely.
Paso 3 ¶
To protect your iOpener from the glass and keep it from filling with glass dust, stick some masking tape to one side.
Heat the iOpener and apply it to one edge of the iPad, directly on top of the pieces of glass that are still adhered to the rear case of the iPad.
Leave the iOpener there for at least 90 seconds, to soften the adhesive holding these small pieces in place.
Paso 4 ¶
Grab your favorite plastic tool and start prying out the remaining pieces of glass from the iPad frame.
This is a slow and tedious process, but benefits greatly from heating the adhesive.
Remove all of the glass and residual adhesive and continue your repair.
