Smashed or cracked screen on your iPad?

With the right tools and half the repair fee, watch this…

Peter Cannon says:

You know what? Fair play. #fixit 

Jake Peterson says:

“Time is money.”
Considering that, what would you prefer:
1) Spending 200$ to repair it at an genuine Apple shop.
2) Spend 8 hours fixing it yourself with cheap aftermarket items.

I’m really happy that so many people have seen my ‘I fixed my own iPad’ BBC
Click feature – just putting it in my Google+ profile as well because I’m
still proud of it! This took such a long time, and there were times where I
thought it would never work, but aside from the successful fix, I feel like
I gained a greater understanding of the technology I use, and there’s far
less mystery behind a slick tablet or in fact any other piece of kit.
Thanks to the restart project people and Alex Petrescu for patience,
friendliness and tea. Lots of tea.

its not the worse feeling in the world !!!!!!!!!!

2 things. 1. Thank you for trying to fulfill Steven Spielberg’s idea of
2015 with those glasses (please smash them- and 2. The second guy who was
nice enough to “help” you and give you the free antenna was trying to get
in your pants. I hope you compensated him.

Girl in bright shirt and rubbish shades uses hair dryer to break then fix
then break her iPad.

Same thing happen to me with cracked Nexus 7 screen. Google told that the
cost for replacement the broken screen will cost $150. I watched the screen
replacement tutorials online and fixed by myself just for $70 bucks. 

mike malone says:

10 out of 10 for effort! :D

Yi-Hsuan Lee says:

Looks like it could be easily done, but still needs lots of tools and
effort.

Restart project…I like this idea…taking bodging to new levels. Brunel

Now that I have reached the grand old age of 60 I have put a monetary value
on every hour I am awake. This I based on my last year worked. Therefore I
estimate i am worth $25.00 per hour. To fix the IPad took how many hours???
It would be worth the 200pounds 8 hours of work to have it done
professionally.

Erik Tempest says:

I think you are missing the point David Coles.

David Coles says:

apple dont even put this much effort into fixing them i work for an IT dept
and when we send them for repair they just send us replacements. cheap
Chinese labour makes these cheaper to replace than repair

Ben Adelie says:

It’s the GSM antenna, not the GPS. One would expect a “gadget girl” to know
her basic stuff better!

DepressedCapitalist says:

What a world-changing accomplishment!
