1) Yes, the mid frame is a must to buy along with this because, as stated by others, the mid frame is fragile plastic and it will break no matter how careful you are. The problem with this whole thing is that the "home button" mechanism is really tricky to detach and reattach. With the broken mid frame in my hand, I watched some of the YouTube videos on how to remove the home button and reattach to the new frame. I could see I would not be very good at doing it.
2) No, it is not easy to remove the broken Touch screen. Some of the YouTube videos are not being honest. They are done with Touches that have been worked on in the past and so the screens are easy to come off. If you are a first timer like me, it's not easy using the tools they give you. But I was able to remove the screen after much care and frustration, and in the process, broke the mid frame into small fragments. I had to then remove the mid frame plastic pieces bit by bit until they were all off.
3) In the end, I went to Ebay and bought a complete set that includes both the replacement cover and the mid frame with a new home button for a really cheap price. I would go this route again in the future. When this item came, I simply reattached it onto the glass-coverless Touch and voila, it was finished in less than a minute.
Once the bad digitizer was separated from the iPod, the next step was to remove the frame that it's glued to. This was a major PITA especially because of the broken glass. I managed to separate it but the frame, being very thin and made of plastic, broke in 2 sections. I was concerned that I'd need a new one, but since I didn't have one, I continued on. I cleaned up the frame well, used the 3M 2-way adhesive and stuck the new digitizer to the frame. Luckily, the 3M 2way tape held the broken edges of the frame to the digitizer pretty well. I felt that when I snapped in back in place onto the iPod, it'd be fine.
I connected the ribbon cable and tested the digitizer and it worked fine. But when I tested the button, it didn't work. While trouble shooting it, I accidentally tore the ribbon cable, so that was the end of that new digitizer.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the assembly has to be back onto the iPod in order for the button to work, because there is a contact point on the iPod that touches the button assembly on the digitizer for it to work.
I ended up ordering another replacement digitizer but decided to order a fully assembled set that included the button and frame.Read more ›

I cannot vouch for the quality of the screen, as I was never able to apply it. The adhesive strips that came with the repair package were left uncovered on one side, meaning it... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
