    there was dust under the screen so i went to take it apart. when i got the screen off i wasnt careful enough and ended up breaking the ribbon cable that connected the digitizer (glass thing on top of the screen) then i went into shock
    and the next thing i know im tearing apart my ipod touch

    Sorry to hear that, was your iPod jailbroken when your screen got dust under it?

    Your iPod would have still worked if you put it back together you just wouldn't have wifi

    no it didnt. the ribbon cable that sent the info on where on the screen i touched broke. in other words ipod touch became shiny brick.

    You'd be very surprised at the amount of threads just like that from people who insist on A) Not Searching First and B) Not Using Common Sense.
