    Welcome to the forum it is unfortunate that has happened maybe someone can assist but this is a lesson to any one considering doing it your self you are better off going to Apple for replacement or changeover as your warranty is now non and void or taking out all risk insurance to cover damage or loss. Please give our uses time to respond thank you

    I am so sorry to see this. Where did you get the idea or instruction to do this, if you don't mind me asking?

    From YouTube...but it seemed easier than a iPhone or touch I've done them before With no problems. I did find out about the tab that i tore it was for volume controls, I ordered it for 12 bux. But I just can't seem to find any info on that square foil tape thingy. I know I I take it to apple it will be better of buying a new one. Especially If they charge alot. I've read many stories on here.
