I still have about 12 thousand titles on the Ipod and wanted to keep it until I can offload them.
Would have been flawless except for the vagueness of step seven...removing the headphone cable. I did what many others did and simply pulled the cable right off of the connector. I suggest better pictures and a more cautionary tale as I had never been inside an Ipod before and really didn't know what to expect when disconnecting things. I'm at the "super glue" it back on stage...haven't tried it yet.
Read step 7 carefully and DONT just pull the ribbon off of the connector; make sure you pull the connector up and off.
