The digitizer is connected by carefully pressing the end of the ribbon down onto the main board. You will feel a slight click as the connector engages.

You have to be sure to line-up the two halves of the connector just right before gently pressing down.

Hopefully you haven't damaged the ribbon cable.

I've replaced the digitizer 3 times on my 2nd generation iPod Touch and it's VERY easy to rip that ribbon.

Also, be sure to remove the protective, clear membrane from the inside and outside of the digitizer or your have to live with a blurry display until you replace it again.

    Sorry about missing that point about the flex cable. I've not messed with that before. Have you checked the tutorials for this repair on ifixit.com?

How to Replace screen and digitizer for iPod touch 4th gen.


iPod Touch 4th Generation:
iPod Touch 4th Generation: Heat the surrounding edges of the iPod for 30 seconds
Begin at the bottom corner...used a straight blade to pry the glass up slowly; the LCD will come with it since they are fused together.
When you get closer to the top be very careful since the wifi cable is normally sticking to the glass. If it is use a small screw driver to detach it from the glass. The wifi cable is on the opposite side of the power button.
There is one flex cable (LCD) that can be removed; just a slight twist and it should pop off easily.
The other flex cable (Digitizer) is under the logic board and since you'd be replacing it you can cut this flex cable to work with more ease.
Remove the eight screws on the metal plate.
Remove the metal cover over the camera...screw driver on the very edge and pop up...do not use much force or dig at it since it would be very easy to destroy the camera.
To remove the metal plate that covers the batter: bottom left corner... dig your screw driver in (shallow) then push through horizontally until you reach the edge and lift the end of the screw driver upwards...using this method will allow the speaker to stay in place and the metal plate to separate.
Remove the top three screws
Put a screw driver between the logic board and the power flex cable as you gently lift the logic board up on that side...this method will ensure you don't rip the POWER flex cable
Do not lift aggressively...both cameras must be lifted gently, the adhesive is not that strong but there are some there.
The power and volume flex cable connection to the logic board is near the volume buttons, be extremely careful not to damage the connection when lifting the logic board.
Remove the copper tape surrounding the connection for the digitizer and install new digitizer.
Follow steps in reverse.
Good Luck

Password for wifi 2wire17


The iPod changed the face of the music industry.
Through Apple's device, the use of MP3 music players became a widespread phenomenon, and remains the standard mode of mobile musical enjoyment today.
Its interface was easy to learn and use, and you could store several gigabytes' worth of songs into the device.
Eventually, as new iPod models came out, mobile movie and picture viewing became much more accessible.
With the release of the iPod Touch, another feature was introduced--the ability to connect to wireless Internet.
If you own a 3rd Generation iPod Touch, it's easy to get your Wi-Fi working.
Go to "Settings" and find the Wi-Fi selection. Turn Wi-Fi on.
Wait as the Wi-Fi will detect possible networks connections within range.
Look for the network you wish to connect to and press it.
If it's not on the list, go to "Wi-Fi," select "Other" and type the name of the network.


If a password is required, click on the "Security" option, select the type of security, enter the password and press "Join."
You may have to pay a fee before you can establish a connection to a secured network.

Press the arrow button beside the name of the network to adjust the settings.
The network may have other requirements such as entering a client ID or static IP address.
The network administrator should be approached for these details.

Monitor the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the screen.
The more bars that are highlighted, the stronger the signal.
Get closer for a stronger signal.

How can i update my iPod model # MC086LL


The iPod touch is not only a music player, but also your gateway to the world via the Internet. In order to connect to the iTunes music store and use the email and web-browsing features of your iPod touch, you must first connect to a wireless network.

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it. Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks. Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join." Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature. Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network." Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.
When the iPod touch was introduced in 2007, it quickly became one of the best-selling portable music players on the market. What separated the iPod touch from its competitors was its ability to access the Internet through Wi-Fi networks. If you're ready to surf the web and send e-mail with your new iPod touch, it's easy to get connected. Just a few taps, and you'll be on your way.

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPod touch's home screen. Tap the arrow on the far right of the "Wi-Fi" bar on the "Settings" screen. Move the slider on the "Wi-Fi" bar to the "On" position. Move the slider on the "Ask to Join Networks" bar to the "On" position if you wish to be notified before your iPod touch connects to a new network. Moving the slider to the "Off" position means you must select a Wi-Fi network manually before your iPod touch will connect. Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen. You will see the Wi-Fi icon appear in the top left corner of your screen with up to four bars illuminated to indicate that Wi-Fi is available and to show its signal strength. iPod touch Support
