Hey guys,
Well I lent my iPod to my sister, and while she was running with it, it slipped out of her hand and onto the pavement, at which point she accidentally stepped on it. The only major damage I can see is that the glass on it is broken, it will still turn on, and I can still touch the screen and it is just as responsive as it was before it cracked.

What I would like to know; can I fix this by myself using a "iPod Touch Gen 1 Replacement Digitizer 16GB" (http://www.gethightech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=IP-2153&Category_Code=DIG)? From the PDAparts.com website?

Here is the damage that was done.
