    Please give time to think about my poor ipod which today i dropped and smashed the screen. I have just purchased a new digitizer (screen) for it so hope fully it will arrive soon as I am devastated.

    I will be watching the youtube video intently to see what to do.

    how much would apple charge for this to be fixed, you must have some kind of warranty?

    very sorry for you, must have been very hard for you to see your ipod touch in that state. Good luck with installing the screen, it may be tricky though

    Just to let you all know whilst prepping my ipod for the repair i slipped and destroyed one of the circuit boards and chips with a screw driver. So my ipod is no more. i am truly gutted.

    Ooof. Sorry to hear that. You might try selling it on ebay along with the replacement screen. You never know, someone might still want to try to fix it or use it for parts. Better than keeping it around and not getting anything for it I guess.

    Haha super funny i have just had my mobile stolen as well so can't really take any pictures.

    But on the real bright side. I managed to repair it with a lot of solder a new screen and some long hard patience I have done it. it now only has a wifi range of 1 and a half meters though.
    So if you could welcome my ipod back to life and hope it enjoys some happy days for its hopefully long future.
