digitizer was crushed after falling onto a porcelain tile floor face first
Repair went well for the digitizer. It took longer for the repair because there were so many small bits of glass to be removed. I also cleaned out the remaining adhesive residue, which took time. The only issue I had was removing the LCD panel. Your instructions were written to pull the panel back, after removing the screws and gently lifting the panel (which was done with very little deflection), to remove it from the tape holding it. Evidently my tape's adhesive properties were greater than those of the person writing the instructions. After reassembly, I discovered the LCD was damaged a little in the process. Along the bottom of the screen is about a 1/8" of lines running across and about 8 lines running vertically in the center of the screen. The vertical lines get worse if you push on the digitizer a little harder. I disassembled the iPad a gain to ensure everything was as it should be and it was. So digitizer is perfect LCD screen is not. It took longer than 2 hours because of the crushed glass and the cleaning. I spent an hour ensuring there was no glass in the reveal.
My recommendation would be to remove the tape before lifting the LCD screen. The tweezers do a very nice job of that and it reduces any possibility of putting stress on the LCD screen. The use of an Exacto knife is needed to get the remaining shards of glass from the reveal.
I have noticed the home button doesn't work as nicely as the original iPad home button. Is there a reason for that?
