Fastmac has expanded its “Just Say No To Crack” iPod repair service to include same-day LCD display replacements for fourth-generation iPods. Already available for fifth-generation iPods and iPod nanos, the repair service offers replacement of scratched or cracked iPod screens, either as a do-it-yourself kit with tools and instructional videos, or via a $39.95 same-day mail order installation service provided by Fastmac directly.  5G iPod screens cost $49.95, iPod nano screens cost $39.95, and 4G iPod screens cost $29.99.

What about the mini!? I mean I know it’s out of stock, but mine just broke (it still works), but I know I may not get it back if I send it out for repair. That sucks.

@Nyanko

You weren’t planning on sending that Mini back to Apple were you. That is to say you are not in guarantee any more.

I did the do it yourself method and my Mini screen (plus I put in a new battery) works better than ever.
