Does replacing the screen auto update and delete your app and photos

To Infinity_And Beyond says:

Woah, I’m not trying that tho. I rather live with it than damage it

Pete Munson says:

Good video, I’ll fix a friends one now and charge him £120 because he was
told it would be £160 buy a shop.

jbserra says:

This mentioned the wifi antenna needing to be worked carefully around, but
more details would’ve been appreciated…

Make sure you peak under that corner and attempt to unpeel the antenna from
the digitizer before pulling it back too far. I’m not even sure how
possible that is because it’s pretty much a sticker. If you have a trick
for doing this, please share! Otherwise the wire will split and hopefully
some rework will resolve this new issue.

Oh, and if your digitizer isn’t broken when you start, most likely it will
be by the time you’re done unless you have zenlike patience (perhaps why
this is rated as “advanced”). Having a screen protector helps keep the
broken digitizer together as you try to remove it.

i was playing on my ipad 2 one time till this kid was play fighting with
this other kid and hit into me, my ipad got smacked out of my hands and
landed on concrete, my ipad 2 has no cracks but just a black screen,
everything still works, i have played around with it and i can get into my
apps but i can’t see anything on the screen ? need help asap, havent used
my ipad for 5 months now, any luck or way that it could be fixed ?

Shaun Pearson says:

May I suggest sending the kids out to play due to the frequent & vehement
swearing that will ensue?

Frank Conrad says:

150 dollars!!?? I just looked on ebay and they’re like 20-25 bucks! Where
the hell did he get his for 150?

dynamiteblowz says:

Where can I get adhesive strips for the ipad?!?

revell devil101 says:

Ont go to a shop unless you know that they do a good job because when I got
mine done at a shop the front panel is now easy to just come off with a
small drop

Michael Redfern says:

thanks for the info on the volume tape that is located by the volume

if you go to deep (just like the wireless, it gets cut!!!!!!

you’re stupid!!!

Boyinleath says:

Im a Little comfused, i began removing the front panel from my iPad when it
started displaying the apple logo you get when you turn your iPad on. After
a few seconds The screen goes black and then it starts again. Why could
that be?

you are the best thanks :*

Lads Gaming Channel says:

i paid 25 for my screen

Allbbrz says:

One trick that you all should learn is to get packing tape and tape the
entire broken panel so you wont get glass shards all over. And it also
makes the thing more easy to handle.
Nice video.
