    Hello guys :)

    I have an iPod Touch 4G which needs a new screen & digitiser (they're cracked), and fitting it is a breeze for me, but I just want to ask if anyone (UK) has a recommendation as to which kits to *avoid*, since I only want to do this once.

    You can buy a full kit + tools + 3M adhesive for £18, but will the replacement match the quality of Apple's own? I'm sure they're all made by FoxConn etc anyhow :p

    Thank you, I really appreciate the help :)

    Tools dont matter as long as they work, 3M adhesive is great. As for the screens I buy from etechparts and wholesalegadgetparts. It is basically impossible to get a genuine apple one since those have to be pulled out of an iPod. But you are right most are made in foxconn and many are just as high quality.
