    I want to repair my iPod Touch 2G by myself. I have completely taken out everything on the top and accidentally broke certain things. I will need an entirely new digitizer including the bezel, I also need a new LCD. I need to know how to connect the new bezel and digitizer together the right way, I also need to know how to transfer the home button (only thing I didn't break...) and it's tiny board that makes it work. I also need to know how to replace the LCD and about what size screwdriver I would need.

    The parts I have looked at...:


    Digitizer includes glass: $21.99 (free shipping)

    Bezel: $15.99 (free shipping)

    LCD: $41.30 ($10.45 shipping)

    If anybody thinks it is better getting it repaired professionally, and know a price that is reasonable and close to the total spent repairing by myself, please tell me.

    If anybody has any experience, please share. I heard I had to use glue to connect the bezel and digitizer together, which made me sad there was no other smarter way of connecting the two parts together. I also heard the tiny board for the home button is called the home button plate, and I have to melt it into place on my new digitizer/bezel.

    Thanks in advance!

    you can try to do this yourself but i DO NOT recommend it
    i found a repair service called "RapidRepair" google it they have very reasonable prices and will fix it for you in a matter of days...I'm getting a brand new Screen, Digitalizer/Bezel, and Chrome back+ they install all for something like $165. Sounds pricey but better than breaking your Ipod
    It's 100% your decision obviously

    Good luck with whatever you choose!

    I'd go with option #2 Buddy. To risky unless your an expert.
