My iPod Touch 3G 32GB running iOS 5.0.1 has been giving me problems for a while by sporadically charging when plugged in to devices (giving an error that charging device is not compatible). Recently the battery icon/percentage got stuck at 100% all the time. Now the iPod is dead and does not seem to charge at all. I ordered a replacement battery including tools to remove the screen ($6) and soldering iron ($7) from Amazon and am going to go for the gusto. Aside from a botched attempt to solder copper plumbing piping and limited experience ripping open personal computers I don't have much experience with iDevice repair. Does anyone have any advice or tips in this scenario? I am aware of the multiple YouTube video and web pages, but thought I'd see what comes up here too. Thanks in advance. Edit: Also, for what it's worth I called Apple Store in my area and was told they would not quore a repair estimate over the phone so I would have to come in to speak with a tech. The internet tells me that they don't replace batteries but give a discounted reconditioned unit. ...so here's a special "screw you too" to Apple.
