  • Remove the home button flex cable which is attached to the metal plate (please note you can skip your step if you are reusing your original mid section).

  • Put the mid section on one side and then remove the screen protectors from a newly purchase glass touch screen digitizer replacement.
  • Put your home button in place makes sure attach fit the holes on the mid section. Then being careful of the ribbon cable put the glass touch screen digitizer in place on to the mid section and presses down secure in place.
  • Reattach the digitizer to the iPod. Line the digitizer connector up with the connector of the iPod and gently press in place (be careful not to pull or twist the ribbon cable as it quite fragile and can easily rip).
  • Gently place the glass into the correct position. Before pushing the glass into place you have to check if it?s working. Once everything is okay gently press it down so it clips in.
