My daughter was enjoying her ipod (she worked very hard to get) when she accidentally dropped it (with the siliconized cover on). When she picked it up, she noticed the scuff on the edge. She then realized that was not a scuff, but a really bad crack that covered half the screen. She was devastated! She could not afford to replace this toy after she had worked so hard the first time just to get it.
She and her father looked online to find a fix. When they came across the ifixit site. He ordered the parts necessary to repair and the two of them watched several videos on how to replace the digitizer on an ipod touch. It went rather well, although my daughter was very nervous at times. Just seeing your favorite toy being destroyed is a little unnerving. We pulled through, with no residual damage and the ipod is in full function as we type. Thank-you for your help
Watch LOTS of videos and go to ifixit for repairs.
