    Default how to repair ipad glass to make it sit flush?
    Hey guys need some help today, I know this is the iphone section and not ipad, but theres not much action going on in the ipad forums. so i thought i post it in this area.

    Today I'm repairing my first IPad 2 on my own for a huge clientele of mine and I'm worried I might not repair it perfectly. I was wondering if you can give me some tips and insight on how to repair the iPad 2 properly. I'm confident i can repair most of the ipad, but my main concern is getting the IPad glass to sit flush. I saw in some pictures you have clamps to hold it down? do you use a certain type of adhesive? and tips about the cables inside and how to avoid damage. Any Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Ifixit has awesome guides, hardly ever steer you wrong. Just don't buy tools from them..EVER. Their prices are insane (Example: A perfectly normal U.S. Quarter for $2.00, just because they can)

    Aw man. I really wanted some of their toolkits, if nothing else but for the ease of transport of their base toolkit lol.
