This was really simple using the ipod tool. It took just a few minutes. The longest delay was just being cautious not to tear any cables. Works Great! The replacement screen and front panel fit perfect and look exactly like the original. Can't tell the difference from the original except this new glass is not cracked.
I have a 4thG original ipod. This was a simple process and it was successfully completed. The ipod was able to be synced after 6 months of sitting in a drawer. The only issue so far is that the entire ipod gets warm to the touch while it's charging. Hopefully that will lessen after subsequent charges. The only bit of confusion in the instructions is the beginning step of inserting the ipod tool at the top. I thought I was trying to unlatch a tab there but there is none on top. Otherwise everything else was clear and exactly as described and pictured.
