Here’s my 5 years old iPod. I accidentally dropped it and cracked the LCD. Luckily the rest was okay but it looks totally zombified and sad.
If you take this to Apple, they’ll rip your balls off. (Around 250 bucks?)I love their products but I’m not going waste on that. There’s not much to prepare, if you’re going to do it yourself.
I followed the instruction on Installing iPod 5th Generation (Video) Display, and what you will need:
- Opening tools. (Maybe its just me but opening an iPod is like digging a concrete floor…)
- An antistatic mat.
- An official and genuine LCD screen.
It’s just that simple.
