iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Glass and LCD Repair Information

iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation Repair Information Both the new iPhone 4 and Touch 4th Generation pose new challenges on the repair front. Apple has created yet another list of repair obstacles with its latest additions. Different from previous models the process of replacing the Front Glass, Digitizer, and LCD on the new Apple 4 models take on a new approach as we see the integration of the LCD panel into the Front Glass.

Front glass integration is no new thing to Apple as this style was used in the iPhone 2G. Would be home repair technicians soon found out how difficult it was to actually replace the Front Glass without needing to replace the LCD at the same time on the 2G. It is possible to remove the LCD from the Front Glass but next to impossible to do it without damaging other parts. Let’s be honest, trying to pry off a glued paper thin LCD screen off another piece of thin glass is not the easiest task. Even with heat the removal process is both time consuming and messy. Even if you are lucky enough to get it off how do you get it back on to the new Front Glass? Many times you will incur other damage from attempting such a replacement. The most logical step is to avoid this problem completely and to replace them together as one part which eliminates the separation and re-adhesion process. This method is more expensive but when you weigh in the time and work involved it is more economical to do it this way.

    Any suggestions on good tape/glue to keep the iPod together? I replaced the front panel, which went well, but now the front and rear part won’t stay together. I used 3M tape.
