    So...... i bought this broken iTouch from my friend for 25 bucks and it pretty much sucks when it comes to the screen.

    It has three huge cracks but everything works perfectly! Like, i can barely feel them and the touch works perfectly, and so does everything else. But, the backplate has a little dent and it has scratches all over it.

    I am looking to sell this iPod before Christmas, so I need to repair it ASAP...

    I have been looking on eBay and I've found these:

    *iPod Touch Replacement LCD/Digitizer for $20

    *iPod touch 2nd Gen Original 8GB Backplate for like $10

    *OEM Ipod Touch 2nd Gen Middle Bezel Frame with Adhesive for $7

    So, it will cost me about $40 to replace it, plus the $25 I bought it for, for a total of $65 investment in repairing an iPod. So... I can get around $150 for it, right? So that would be only $85 profit? Plus, i have no experience doing any of this, so it would be GREAT to have some help!!

    If you have any tutorial/experience doing this, pleaseee help me!

    I've done this once or twice, Just do it slow. Wash your hand. Dont be irritated. Review the youtube videos alot. And remember. This is dependent on your patience. If you fail once. GO again. Since you bout the bezel just yank it off..
