iPhone 4 GSM/AT&T Display Assembly Replacement Part Sheet

iPhone 4 GSM/AT&T Display Assembly Replacement Part Sheet

Replacing the display assembly on an iPhone isn’t usually a difficult task, it is however tedious. I’ve replaced the display (LCD / digitizer) assembly a number of times. Prior to creating this sheet I forgot to do something (the mesh screen usually) or didn’t get the screws in the right order. Hopefully you find this sheet as useful as I do. I am up for suggestions on how to improve it (notes, steps, etc.). One of the most important parts of this sheet is the Notes section at the top. No matter how many screens I replace I ALWAYS reread this section and then prior to reassembly I read it again.

How to Burn an iTunes Playlist to MP3 CD (step by step)

Today started out normal, sit, code, snack, listen to music. It all changed when I decided to go to lunch. I was listening to a playlist in iTunes and decided I would burn it to a CD (MP3) and listen in the car on the way to eat. No problem, just right click the playlist and select Burn to disc, go. Well, not really. As it turns out more than a few of my music files are AAC files (purchased via iTunes). ACC files won’t burn to an MP3 disc as they aren’t MP3’s. Four search phrases later and I found this: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20031221152135219. Which turned out to be very similar, it was written for a Mac (I use Windows) and it was created in ’09 (thank you cudaboy_71).   How to burn playlist to an MP3 cd that includes AAC files without leaving iTunes Open iTunes and select (highlight) the songs you want to burn to the disc (I suggest creating a playlist of them first). Right click the highlighted list and select Create MP3 version (yes, all of the songs will be converted to MP3 (the originals will remain untouched, these will be new MP3 files), even the ones that already are, this seems odd, but it’s the easy way, you’ll see why in a few steps). Click the + (plus) sign below your current playlists and select New Smart Playlist… In the Smart Playlist dialog, drop down the first rule (mine said Artist) and select Date Added (the smart selector will change the rest to is and put in today’s date). Click OK and a new Smart...
