It's my understanding that the three are fused together in an attempt to alleviate the issue of dust getting caught. Meaning you need to replace the lot. I've just lived with the crack in mine.

I have also heard that the glass and lcd are fused. Not sure why they are selling just the glass.

That's most likely why it only has one star is it possible to take the LCD etc off the glass?

Unfortunately, ifixit.com confirms this.

If you bought them separately, be careful when sticking the LCD to the digitizer as the entire surface of the LCD is covered with glue. Once it sticks to the LCD, you will not be able to remove it.

I know that GDP supplies both iPod Touch 4th Generation Digitizer Touch Panel and iPod Touch 4th Generation LCD and Digitizer assembly. you have more choices. it is more convenient.
