    They look pretty much identical to me, from the pictures.

    This is where I go for parts: iPod Touch 2nd Generation (iTouch) Replacement Glass Touch Screen

    I guess you've got a 50/50 chance of wasting $30.

    I'd have to agree with the first reply, I believe they're identical. The difference in the two is the internals, not the displays. If your ipod is an 8GB model i'd suggest the 2G screen either way.

    Okay,

    so I've received 4 iPod touch 2G digitizers without a midframe and bezel (home button). Installing the midframe itself is easy, however is the bezel easy to install too?

    What about if it is the 32GB or the 64GB models?

    Thanks in advance.

    well if the ipod is 8GB then it must be a 2g, and if it is 32 or 64 GB you can tell by multitasking

    sorry, just to be clear, if the ipod has multitasking, it is a 3rd generation, if not, it is a second generation.

    I'm not asking for help to identify iPod Touches, I am asking for information about digitizer compatibility and the level of difficulty regarding the installation of the midframe and bezel (DIY).

    Hehe, I know, just piling on the help. You never know who will stumble upon this page looking for answers, y'know?
