    I'm guessing it's from the sticker that covered the iPod initially. Anyway like in the small crevice above the front camera, there's a little residue.. how do I get rid of it? With a needle and slowly lift it up?

    Yeah I had some of this stuff too, but it was down near the home button. Originally I had thought it was a chipped piece of the backing. I was able to get most of it out with just a fingernail. I wouldn't suggest sticking a needing too far down, although if you're careful and really don't want any residue at all I supposed that would work.

    You could do what I used to do.
    -Take a piece of tape, and loop it around two fingers (or more) with the sticky side facing outward. It should be decently tight around your two fingers.
    -Take the two fingers and keep on touching the sticky residue with the tape. Slowly, but surely, all of it will come off. This takes patients
