Just got mine in the mail last night, and after reading through some posts I thought the installation would be tough. It took me all of 1 minute to 'install' the case on my ipod touch. I feel like it was too easy. Looking at the instructions, it makes it seem like the 'exo-skeleton' needed to be attatched seperatly. Mine was already hooked up, and all I had to do was slip the case on. With that said, the thing looks really nice!! I also opted not to put the protective film on my screen.
