So, a couple months ago I dropped my iPad 2 on gravel, and while it only fell about a foot it looked like it might has well fallen from a second story window.
Anywho, I got my insurance company to replace the screen but it wound up being fixed by their repair center. They did a really sloppy job and it wound up being poorly mounted, ill fitting, and, just last thursday, broke while I was playing a game. Not been dropped or mishandled but just *pop* right in the middle of my game of nyan cat.
So I ordered my own digitizer and did this myself. It came with a colored button and outer plastic bezel as well. It feels as solid as the original screen.
Just felt like showing it off! =)
I like the green better than the white. Nice looking Green Apple iPad.
Is it a Granny Smith? :-)
Sent from my iPad using iPF - Peace
Wow, I don't like looking at your broken iPad. OUCH!!
Looks great now, one of a kind, very nice!
Thanks! Now I just need to find a darker green smart cover. I have the light green poly one and it's too light for my OCD to say "they go together"
As for its original spill, it didn't even fall far enough for me to feel the need to say the "face down prayer" before picking it up. It was a big disappointment.
Love this colour green. Very sleek. How easy was install?
Couldn't be easier, the hardest part was getting all the glass pieces and leftover adhesive out. Reinstallation was a breeze.
Though this is by no means my first time replacing a screen, though my first for an ipad2.
It's easier than anything else I've done. There's just glue to pull up and 6 screws altogether. 4 on the LCD and 2 on the home button.
Thats not too bad then. Plus you get the peace of mind knowing exactly how and who has done the job and how smoothly it went. Insurance company's are never as fantastic as what they make out to be.
Exactly, I was disappointed when I got it back and picked it up and could feel the poor quality in the work. The screen felt flimsy and they never glued it down like they should have. There were places where the screen had give to it like by the volume buttons and headphone jack and other parts where I could get my fingernail up under the screen without trying. I just decided to bite the bullet and do it myself and I'm much happier. Everything fits snug and flush and since it came with that new plastic bezel it made for a nice tight seal and looks like it could have come like this factory. I'm much happier with this than I ever was with the insurance company's sad excuse for work.
Also, When I say glued I mean those 3m adhesive panels.
Where did you get the digitizer from, if you don't mind me asking.
While I can't post a link just google hookup cellular. They've got good prices and I'm really pleased with the quality.
