Okay so on my 2g the glass has been raising along the top left corner.
There is a rediculous amount of dust under the screen.
So should I repair myself or attempt a call to apple?

It's a 2nd Gen iPhone. No longer supported by AppleCare. Also, that dust is pretty much lint from your dryer.

Probably should have stated it was a 2g touch :D

Still, it's outside the support zone.

Check that fact a bit before you go ahead.

Apple still sells 2G iPod touches (refurb) which are eligible for Applecare.

The ones being sold. Old ones; no. Which is why I suggest checking before cracking up.

Don't open it if you are not sure that you can put it together again. Trust me, I've already wrecked one. Its not that trivial as it might look first.

Oh, I know what I'm doing.
I replaced my brother's front glass after it shattered a year ago
