    So my sister dropped her ipod on the road and the screen cracked. Its pretty bad, and as to be expected, she is really sad.

    I'm assuming apple won't fix this, but are there other services that fix cracked screens? Have any of you done it yourself?

    So it looks like only the glass is cracked. The lcd and the touchscreen are both still working. Will apple just replace the glass for a low cost?

    Or who is this friend who fixed it? I would be interested in do it yourself.

    Well it her iPod jailbroken? Cause that voids the warrenty


    "Jailbreaking": Allowing Third-Party, non app store apps (ie Cydia) through a process of hacking through a software.

    Get a new one. If you can't pay full price check apples site and look for a refurbished one.

    @jmanprousk: it is not jailbroken. mine, on the other hand, is.

    @fthsjustin: i am fully aware that she could purchase a new one. your saying so is extremely uninformative and not helpful at all.

    guys, its just the glass, not the touchscreen or the lcd. is there no replacement procedure for just the glass?

    Hi Oregon I just searched on the internet for where you can buy ipod parts and found this website which apparently sells ipod screens and if you search on youtube I'm sure you can find a guide on how to do it.
