I'm sorry if this has been covered a million times, I did a search and didn't come up with anything. I have an iPod touch 4G with a VERY shattered glass. I have a replacement glass, got it all apart no problem but the glass appears to be glued to the screen. With it in a million pieces it doesn't look like it can be removed, any suggestions?

Thanks to all, this forum was such a great help fixing my IMAC I am hoping I can get my daughters iPod repaired too.

It looks like in that link you can't do it! It looks like it has to be replaced as a unit. At leas that is what I came up with, that is discouraging. Thank you though, that is a great site!

If your changing the screen you need to get a display assembly, with the screen and LCD already glued together.
