    Hi i have cracked my screen on the left top corner of my ipod touch 2gen

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    My insurance will not cover a cracked screen (well it will but... Im saving it incase i completely break it and it wont work at all.)

    I can buy a screen, But i don't have a clue how to fit it.
    Or i can send it off to get a new screen and repair it for me. (But it costs like... Double the price

    iFixIt sells iPod touch screens for $49: here

    The specs list that it's for a 1G but there is no difference between the screens of the 1G and 2G (that I'm aware of).

    I can get one for £19 But.... People have said that ... To change a screen its harder than it looks. So i might just send it off to apple and pay for the full price. (£75)

    What is up with people and scratches on the back? They get soooo mad if they get one tiny scratch.
