    I have seen screen replacements and tools offered online.

    Google?

    The risk is $45 and more, if there is more damage.

    It shouldn't matter, there are inexpensive (under $30) replacements that have the touch screen digitizer and the glass in one piece at sites like dealextreme.com and amazon.com. Don't go on ebay.

    It is really easy too, and to replace the screen, just look on youtube. and replacing just the screen doesn't break the warranty. if you go further into repair though, into the bottom half of the device, you void the warranty.

    Have fun.

    Any opening the device or tampering with it voids the warranty?

    there is a warranty sticker which is underneath the screen which you have to break in order to get into the logic board etc. that's when you're past warrenty

    Off-Topic- In reply to this though, if it is a 1st Gen. then that would mean that the outer glass and digitizer are fused together, so you would have to buy a whole new digitizer-outer glass thingy.
