    do I have to use a heat gun

    Fabiola Winfield - Réponse

    yes it is crucial

    ben folks -

    but u can use a hair dryer on warm

    ben folks -

    I didn't use a heat gun but this was due to the glass being rather shattered and not just cracked in the corner. The rule of thumb might be to not use excessive force, if you see that you need to use the heat gun or a blow dryer as someone suggested. I also wanted to point out the the adhesive strip just around the edges was exposed and it is rather strong so I was able to pull it around part of the edge which actually helped the glass disengage.

    Hi, thanks to this tutorial achieves replace my iPod battery to 100%, it was difficult, so thanks iFixit!

    The only problem I had was with the iFixit screwdriver disappointed me greatly, as it can not remove the screws with the screwdriver.

    A tip for those who first make repairs before starting the disarmament carefully read through the tutorial to not make a mistake that could damage your iPod and do not forget to place pieces in a safe place so they are not lost.

    There should be (in general) better notes about the reassembly process. Getting the thing glued back in is WAY harder than just "reverse this step." Getting it to sit flush with any kind of adhesion is pretty difficult. No real advice other than make sure the edges of the metal thing at the top of the back of the digitizer are in the right slots and use judiciously placed pieces of 3M 300LSE adhesive.

    jonathan - Réponse

    I actually just figured it out. I had the ribbon cable for the digitizer running under the LCD and that wasn't allowing the LCD to sit down far enough. By re-folding the digitizer cable so it was triple-folded (when you do it you'll see what I mean) and only under the glass where there is no LCD, you'll get the glass to sit right.

    Glue is under the black part of the glass, not under the clear part of the glass.

    The Glue is mostly around the top and bottom about 1/2 inch in or so, around both left and right edges the strip of glue is very thin about 1/8 inch or so.

    I had success with heat and sliding the tool or pick up and down the side where there is less glue until it started separating being careful that I was between front glass panel and the black plastic bezel.

    Evon Waters - Réponse

    Take a look at the post What parts to move from the broken screen?

    That will give you some advice as to what to move over from the broken screen, metal bracket, home button and small sponge spacer on the tip of the digitizer connector. Also how important it is to use new adhesive. If after assembling the screen bulges on one side (top or bottom) take the time to dissasemble and check that everything is in place (flat) and like jonathan writes, the digitizer cable is folded.

    • En raison de la construction de l'iPod touch 4ème génération, la nappe de la vitre tactile ne peut pas être déconnectée tant que la carte mère n'a pas été enlevée. Faites preuve d'une extrême prudence lors de la manipulation de l'ensemble panneau frontal, car il est attaché au reste du touch par la très délicate nappe de la vitre tactile.

    • En outre, le câble de données de l'écran est très court et connecté à la carte mère près du haut de l'ensemble panneau frontal. S'il ne se déconnecte pas quand vous ouvrez le bord supérieur de l'ensemble panneau frontal, assurez-vous de le déconnecter avec un outil d'ouverture avant de faire pivoter l'ensemble panneau frontal hors du touch.

    • Décollez avec précaution le dessus de l'ensemble panneau frontal de l'adhésif le fixant au touch, en tenant compte de la petite nappe de la vitre tactile, qui relie les deux composants.

    The LCD cable which attaches to the logic board, is, indeed, very short. When reassembling the iPod, you may only be able to leave a small crack between the glass and the body to allow for enough space to reattach this cable. A plastic opening tool works well, but be warned: it takes quite a bit of patience.

    reidbauer - Réponse

    Indeed the LCD cable which attaches to the logic board is short and I spent a good 30 minutes trying to get it to seat. When I finally did I realized I broke the right side and that is why my display is not working now. When they say difficult, they mean difficult - I have experience with electronics and I recommend you first practice on an older unit if you can.

    kitlammers - Réponse

    Most guides recommend simply cutting the digitizer cable once you have disconnected the data cable. This makes things much simpler for subsequent steps rather than having the front panel dangling there.

    bowlingb - Réponse

    Before i do this repair, does my screen have to be all together. Because my iPod got cracked a while ago, so do i have to buy a new screen so i can put the jack in? Also what goes first in the process when doing both of those things ?

    Diondre Jordan - Réponse

    Reconnecting the data cable is actually pretty easy. Just hold your screen at a 90 degree angle and put it on your underlying surface (and not on the back part of your ipod). Then just use the opening tool to reconnect the cable. The cable is long enough. If you connected it properly try pushing the home button on the back part (not the actual button). If done properly, your screen should light up. (if not try again to connect the cable) Then just fold the screen onto the back part without lifting it. The cable disconnects very easily.

    The antenna cable will almost always stick to the digitzer and often the glass is broken there. You can use a knife to pick out broken glass around the edges elsewhere but use ONLY PLASTIC tool to separate the antenna cable from the old digitzer. This cable is very thin and a metal tool can easily cut the cable which you cannot then repair but must buy a replacement.

    If you are removing broken glass be sure to recover the steel plate glued to the top of glass as well as the home button at the bottom of the assembly.

    Mark - Réponse

    This steel plate or bracket has been discussed many times here. My best experience is to NOT move it to a new screen. Without the bracket and using enough adhesive in fact brings the new screen closer to the chassis and a snugger fit. Read more here: What parts to move from the broken screen?

    Notice, in the image the switch for the home button has a tiny sub-1mm dot in the center of it. When I reassembled the home button did not work. That tiny cylinder of material had been knocked off the switch. A rounded probe could still activate the switch, but the flat metal plate on the home button could not. Fortunately, I was working on a white cloth, and a careful search turned up the tiny cylinder. I was able to reattach it and repair the home button.

    ciradrak - Réponse

    I would like to add that the tiny cylinder is 0.65mm in diameter and 0.20mm high. I was able to successfully reattach it using a thick cyanoacrylate. You must be careful not to foul the switch's membrane with too much glue. I would suggest using fine point tweezers and a metal probe to apply the tiny dot of glue. You need a steady hand for this.

    I have snagged that part of the camera several times. Easy to fix with super-glue along the edges of the cover. Works great. Sometimes no matter how carefully you pry up it falls apart.

    asle -

    This metal plate fits under plastic near RHS edge, and other side drops between the camera and a circuit board - to refit, you may need to loosen a nearby screw to allow you to move the circuit board a little to let this metal plate clip onto the side of the camera.

    I had to press down hard with a plastic tool to get this metal plate to clip on.

    Don't forget to re-tighten it later (I forgot).

    The copper is important for heat dispensing. It has nothing to do with grounding or signal. In worst case if it is torn the Touch could get hotter but should work. If it is torn I usually just lift up one part and move it so it is in contact with the other copper part.

    • Insérez le bord d'un outil d'ouverture pour iPod sous la plaque médiane en acier près du coin inférieur gauche du touch.

    • Faites leveir vers le haut pour séparer la plaque de l'adhésif la fixant au boîtier intérieur en plastique.

    • Si la plaque est toujours attachée à la carte mère, réchauffez cette zone pour ramollir l'adhésif, puis séparez la plaque de la carte mère à l'aide de l'outil d'ouverture.

    • Faites extrêmement attention, le haut-parleur se trouve sous la zone indiquée sur la photo. Il est relié à des fils très fins et courts.

    • Ici une nappe très mince relie les boutons de volume et de marche à la carte mère. Essayez de contourner cette zone comme sur la photo, afin de ne pas déchirer la nappe. Assurez-vous de maintenir cette nappe enfoncée lorsque vous soulevez la plaque. Elle pourrait coller à la plaque en raison de la colle et est extrêmement fragile.

      • Cette nappe se déchire très facilement si vous ne faites pas attention.

      • Il y a également de l'adhésif dans la zone indiquée en rouge.

    The power and volume wire on the logic board were covered with adhesive. Be careful! While trying to remove the steel mid plane I found that the adhesive will rip the ribbon!

    Chris Boenitz - Réponse

    Here is where you take it easy. Two things can be broken here.

    -Use time to carefully separate the bottom left part of the midplane. It sticks to the speaker which you tear the speaker leads if you are to hasty to lift it up. And remember the mid plane must not be bended up here since it needs to be 100% aligned so the new digitizer does not bulge here when in place.

    - The second picture. The black visible adhesive sticks to the volume cable. Use time to carefully separate the mid plane here so the cable is not ripped when you lift up the midplane. Pry a plastic tool like the picture or/and a spudger slowly in until you see/feel the midplane loosening. A broken volume cable is no fun.

    asle - Réponse

    as stated before, be very careful with the part at the speaker.

    the speaker actually sticks to the mid plane and i accidentally lifted it with the plane and separated one cable from the board!

    That small ribbon cable ripped, be sure to really watch this - look at the second picture in this step and try to make sure you understand where it is on the board under it.

    kitlammers - Réponse

    This was difficult during both disassembly and reassembly. I used a thin guitar pick to separate the ribbon cable by the volume buttons from the steel midplane. Reassembly was tough because I didn't have the ipod dock connector seated correctly, AND more importantly, the speaker has a part that needs to be inserted into a black part on TOP of the dock connector-- it looks almost like a tiny air duct that has a foam gasket around it.

    Nik - Réponse

    I was able to replace the home button ribbon cable without having to fully remove the steel mid plane. It lifted up enough from the iPod's body that I was able to slip the ribbon in around the support it sticks to and hold it in place until the adhesive set.

    Much simpler, and didn't cause any problems -- the mid plane didn't deform, and snapped right back into place.

    Thanks for the guide.

    I was able to stop at step 8 for the battery replacement.

    Once you remove the metal shield, desolder the 3 leads. Then use your heat gun to warm the battery. Use plastic pry tool between copper backing and battery and separate them (two adhesive strips on the sides of the battery). Once done with this, you can snake the battery ribbon cable from between the logic board and aluminum casing. Not as easily, but still very doable, snake the new battery ribbon back through the same slot; solder 3 points and reassemble. Much easier than removing the entire board. Good luck!

    Oh also, not mentioned in this guide - there is a plastic/silicon substance covering the 3 leads. Prior to desoldering remove this as much as possible with metal or plastic spudger (if metal, be sure not to bridge the connections).

    The copper tape is mainly for heat dispersion. Without the copper tape it should work anyway but I would just lift up and move one part of the tape so that it is in contact with the other part when you put it together.

    justinallison1, From what I understand, it is ok if that copper tape rips. In fact, I have seen people remove it completely. If it rips, just try and have the 2 pieces touching. (This is what I have researched and done myself with no negative results.

    after removed the steel mid plate, does anybody measure the battery voltage? I measured the battery voltage is only 0.3V. is it normal? I de-soldered the battery three points and measured the battery voltage 3.8V. So It looks like battery is OK. The logic board has problem. So I connected external power source 3.7V and maximum current 50mA to the battery B+ and B-. I found the power source dropped to only 1.65V and 50mA. Could I say logic board has problem?

    Adding to Evon's comment:


    Use your plastic pry tool and make sure the flex cable, between the board and power button is not on top of the board. Take your time because even the slightest snag can tear that flex cable which leads to de-soldering/soldering the battery & flex cable.

    Once the board is lifted the first time I usually put a piece of Kapton tape over that area of the cable in case it has to be pulled up again.

    • La batterie est attachée par des plaquettes de soudure avec des petits trous qui traversent la nappe de la batterie et se fixent sur des plaques plates sur la surface de la carte mère. Dans cette étape, vous chauffez chaque point de soudure individuellement tout en le soulevant de la carte mère avec un spudger métallique.

    • NE PAS créer de contact entre les points de soudure sur la carte et sur la nappe avec votre spudger. Un court-circuit pourrait détruire la carte mère.

    • Veillez à ne surchauffer ni la carte ni la nappe. Maintenez la panne du fer sur la plaquette suffisamment longtemps pour que la soudure fonde. Trop de chaleur risque de détruire la carte mère ou de faire fondre la nappe.

    • Commencez à l'extérieur de la nappe de la batterie. Chauffez le point de soudure le plus à l'extérieur tout en faisant délicatement levier sous la nappe pour l'enlever de la carte. Répétez ce processus pour chacun des deux points restants, en partant de l'extérieur.

    1. Do NOT use a metal spudger for this.

    3. Optional (if you found this tutorial and are replacing the volume/power flex cable and your battery is good) Cover two of the three leads with Kapton tape to avoid shorting a good battery.

    6. Set your temperature on your soldering iron with a flat chisel tip.

    7. Apply a little flux to a copper soldering braid.

    8. Place the copper braid on the contact that you want to de-solder - you may need to lightly hold it steady with your thumb in place.

    9. From the bottom of the cable very gently push up with your index finger.

    10. With your other hand, the one with your iron, gently press down to melt the solder, as soon as the solder melts use your index finger to gently push the cable up so as to disconnect the cable from the solder pad. Wait about 15 seconds for the solder to cool.

    11. Insert a piece of kapton tape between the cable and solder pad.

    12. Repeat steps 7-12 for the remaining two contacts.

    If using flux, be sure to use 94%+ alcohol (once the battery is disconnected completely) to clean off any remaining flux. Don't try cleaning flux off until the battery is removed to avoid pushing debris between contacts and onto other components that will cause a short.

    Rule of thumb, if power is flowing through a logic board don't apply alcohol or try to clean it. Always remove the power source then thoroughly clean. Pushing around small metal particles in alcohol while a device is "hot" is the fastest way to cause a short or electrical arching.

    Bonjour, j'Ai un gros problème, en enlevant la nappe, chaque connecteur a un morceau de nappe qui ne veux pas s'enlever, j'ai beau chauffé le métal mais je ne suis pas capable de les enlever, si quelqu'un pourrai m'aidé s.v.p.

    Merci !

    I followed what another user had suggested and didn't remove the logic board - it worked well and I managed to do it easily enough. However, when trying to remove the solder and cable from the battery terminals (it was really tricky) I think I may have pulled the pad off. I put my iPod back together anyway but now it won't boot, show up in iTunes when it's plugged in or (in fact) do anything. Could the possible loss of the middle terminal be the root of these problems?

    Dan - Réponse

    In this step DON’T USE A METAL SPUDGER!!! Use the plastic/nylon one from ifixit. Then there will be no chance of bridging the contacts on either the battery or the logic board.

    • À ce stade, la batterie ne doit plus être rattachée à la carte mère.

    • Retirez l'ancienne batterie de la carte mère et mettez-la de côté.

    • Ensuite, utilisez la panne d'un fer à souder pour aplatir la soudure sur les points de soudure de la carte mère. Les images montrent «avant» et «après».

    • N'oubliez pas de ne pas trop chauffer les points de soudure.

    Hello, I have pulled the middle pad off my iPod 4th Generation how can i repair this?

    Karl - Réponse

    I did the same thing and accidentally pulled the middle battery pad from the logic board. I know that I am supposed to gently remove the 'laquer' or 'shellac' covering around the area of the pad in order to expose the copper circuit underneath. I am just not sure which circuit I should be working with. A good closeup of the area to work on would be greatly apreciated.

    Best plan is to take it to Apple store.

    delriesenhuber - Réponse

    • Posez la nouvelle batterie à sa place et alignez le contact éloigné avec le point de soudure extérieur. Utilisez un petit morceau de ruban adhésif isolant pour maintenir la nappe contre les points de soudure.

    • Poser la batterie à l'envers (avec la nappe vers le haut) détruirait la carte mère.

    • Placez le morceau de ruban isolant sur l'extrémité de la nappe de la batterie pour couvrir deux des points de soudure et maintenir les contacts contre la carte mère.

    • Chauffez le contact le plus à droite jusqu'à ce que la soudure en dessous fonde, puis appliquez une petite quantité de soudure sur le contact, laissez-lui le temps de circuler à travers les deux trous de la nappe et jusqu'à la carte mère.

    • N'appliquez pas trop de soudure. La quantité requise pour une bonne tenue est minime.

    • Dès que la soudure a coulé dans le joint, retirez à la fois la soudure et la panne.

    Ajouter un commentaire

    • Déplacez le morceau de ruban adhésif isolant afin qu'il ne couvre plus les deux autres fils. Si vous êtes satisfait de la position de la nappe par rapport aux points de soudure sur la carte, procédez. Sinon, dessoudez la première connexion et réessayez.

    • Soudez les deux points restants de la carte mère, en évitant de surchauffer le nappe et la carte.

Where do i get the best quality battery?

Dave - Réponse

Did it! Now screen is a bit funky when I press on the sides of the iPod. Although all seems good :)

Thanks iFixit!

Philipp Boulanov - Réponse

I had a similar problem when pressing on the center button. Turns out it was too much solder on the battery connector. I had to disassemble again and used some solder wick to lower the solder blobs. I suspect that the back plate must not be completely flat for you.

Joshua Belcher -

I followed this guide to the letter but the new battery only has half a charge and will not take a charge when plugged in. Any thoughts?

Bill Lee - Réponse

To clarify, does the battery show as charging when plugged in? If so, will it go from no/low charge back up to half charge? If this is the case, I would contact whoever sold you the battery and ask for a replacement.

Joshua Belcher -

For those using rework stations, what temperatures are recommended for the iron & hot air blower?

Daniel Lott - Réponse

The following temperatures worked well for me:

150ºC hot air for softening adhesives.

290ºC for removing old solder.

Make sure to add liquid flux before removing all traces of old solder, & clean all surfaces.

Apply new flux to both sides of Kapton cables as well as the board. Set your iron temperature acording to the recommended setting for your ROHS electronics solder.

*DO NOT USE NON ROHS or lead bearing solder*

*DO NOT USE plumbing or acid core solder as this will destroy your electronics*

To anybody who gets a white screen when trying to power on the device, all that is needed is a forced restart, just hold the home and power buttons until you get the apple logo

Hugh Powell - Réponse

Invaluable. especially re screw lengths-though how you tell a 2.3mm screw from a 2.4mm screw is a bit of a poser. Unsoldering the battery before folding the logic board out of the way worked for me. Unsoldering the old battery connections was difficult, though, as the battery fitted had the connections apparently covered in plastic. Didn't find any problems using leaded solder - certainly in UK it is allowed for repair work.

Steve - Réponse

Just to say, Thank you! :)

Marc - Réponse

I was a complete and total newbie. I replaced the battery and the screen with this tutorial. I accidentally missed a screw and I think that is why my volume down button didn't make it out alive but that was my only casualty. As I have never soldered before I watched a youtube video on soldering tips first and that helped my confidence. Overall it was very stressful but I have kids too which added to that, but it was a success! Thanks for this very detailed awesome guide!

Aimee Gordon - Réponse

Although these are very nice, detailed instructions, I ruined my Ipod on Step 19. If you do not lift the assembly carefully at this step, the FPC cable attached between the logic board and the case will tear VERY EASILY!

Carlos - Réponse

I just did this with (relative) ease, but I turned it back on yesterday and have had it plugged in the whole time, and it WILL NOT charge! It being my first ipod repair there were a number of casualties, but nothing I considered to be life or death...

1) internal speaker wire got sliced somehow, not even sure how...

2) ribbon cable to volume control completely separated (again, not even sure how)

How does the battery even get power? It's just soldered to the logic board....does electricity just go through the soldering/ribbon cable into/out of the battery?

Chris - Réponse

Hello, first of all, congratulations on the great guide!

I`d like to give a hint. You don`t NEED to go through all the steps to change the battery. You can skip STEPS 16 to 23. You don`t need to actually remove the logic board to change the battery. Just desolder the connections and pass the riboon below the board. That`ll save some time.

Another hint is BE CAREFUL with the heat gun. I used it too much and I think that I`ve damaged something. But it was my fault =[

Great guide, thanks!!

I skipped steps 6 and 9-23 and it worked perfect. Pulled the battery out without removing the logic board after snipping the bad battery flex cable fed the new battery flex carefully between the logic board. Beware... tons of adhesive between battery and copper tape below

I broke unfortunately my iPod touch when I tried to replace the battery. I didn't have the specific tools to open it so I damaged it when opening it. I bought Samsung phone next week to replace my iPod, it's easy to change battery to it.. no more integrated batteries!

isaiah75 - Réponse

Completed battery replacement over two days. Everything is working. The carefully worded procedure, although sufficient, is not for the faint of heart! Patience is paramount. Adhesive, 'foam rubber' seals, silicone over battery pads, and odd-shaped speaker and other components provided added challenge for me. I made good use of additional items: 7X fine tip tweezers, Exacto knife, plastic dental pick, additional tiny screwdriver, solder wick, Kapton tape to provide extra layer of insulation over new battery pads, and OptiVisor to accommodate my 66 yr old eyesight. Without these instructions, the battery replacement would have been near impossible. Thanks.

I replace the battery and it worked but a few days later it stopped working, open it up and I messed up the FTC connector, now need to replace FTC connector and the flex cable, help please how to do it?


Thank you for the guide!

My ipod ran through the washing machine and the dryer, the battery appeared to be unable to charge. So I changed it with the guide.

I was able to change the battery at the step 17, I skipped the step 13 and 15, and I could have skipped 9 to 11 with the headphone jack.

It was not easy to pry the different parts and to seat back the LCD cable at the end, be patient!

Wow, that was hard. However the ipod survived and is fully functional. Thanks for the guide!

jimjty - Réponse

Yes I accomplished this but it was difficult. Really wish Apple was a bit nicer about designing these things. I found that using a heating pad worked really well a loosening up the adhesive. I felt it was a bit safer than the heat gun approach less likely to have overheating issues.

Brian Lenz - Réponse

I follow the guide to replace battery and it work. Had some what of a time removing the battery because the adhesive was adhering strongly, but finally it separated from the housing. Desoldering and resoldering and the reassembling went well.

So now I have my ipod back . Thanks for the wonderful guide.

I ended up breaking the board at 18... I think this step could be skipped... I think one could unsolder the ports after 17. Remove the battery, install, the battery en resolder after that point... Thanks anyways...

Hi, I have replaced the battery, at first, the spare shiiii...ty battery was weird and only charged to 50% then it never charged until it ran out of any charge.

then after detaching the shiiii...ty battery, in the middle of the process I accidentally broke the "volume" and "touch screen" flat cable, and lost all the mini screws.

fortunately, the main board was intact and i connected it to a very ordinary 3.7 V-4000 mAh lipo battery and it work perfect!! (naturally it does not fit in the casing anymore!)

sometime i detach the LCD panel and I use it only as a very powerful and compact music player!

My advice ~ {{{{{{{{{ Don't waste your money on the "Original" shiiii...ty spare batteries, you can buy an ion-battery as cheap as a few bucks in any capacity }}}}}}}}}}}}}

Wes InIowa - Réponse

Good, it is called very complicate !!! Apple does all to make it nearly impossible to change the battery. But I did it !!! I am happy. It took me about 6 hours an d at the end I missed the instruction how to glue all together again.? I fortunately bought the set for it together with the battery. But cleaning all from the old glue took half of the time. Thank you for the good step by step instruction.
