screen cracked after falling face first less then 1 foot.
repair was rather easy seems like. wasn't to difficult to pull the Ipod apart. putting it back together was just as easy sorta.
Had everything thing back together up to the metel shield. after putting in all the screws I pressed "sleep" to see if my repair was thus far succesful and it was. I was playing with it while screen was still not glued back in just to see if things were working properly and all apps and tools I tried worked fine, it was beautiful. I put glue strips down to put the screen in laid the screen down on the glue strips pressed home button and a bunch of white line appeard virtical in the middle of the screen, horizontal on the lefts side of the screen and the display was working on the right side but was really dull and grey looking. The device itself seems to still work other then the screen. guess im out 260$ though as I cant tell whats happening on the display. Only thing I can think of is the cable that attaches to the bottom of the PCB got bent the wrong way when I layed the screen down.
Send it to apple for the repairs. As a 2M tech the components are the smallest I have ever seen in any device thus far and can more then easily be destroyed by the gentelest of wrong turns.
