In order to organize our thoughts, I think we need to give this awful copyrighter a name. Maybe his name should be Shrank.

Getting fixed up with Max Schrenck is a game of strip poker

In all seriousness, iFixit makes great toolkits and their teardown posts and free repair guides are a wonderful community service (even if part of their purpose is to plug their products).

This particular kit isn’t of much use to me, but I use the hell out of my old Pro Tech Toolkit.

My phone screen is cracked and I was considering replacing it myself (£30 instead of £70+). I got 14 minutes through an 18 minute YT tutorial (with lots of sped-up sequences) before giving up on that idea. I really don’t think I have the patience.

Looks like replacing the battery should be simpler though.

I did a phone screen couple years ago, it wasn’t that bad. But I just tried to replace the USB socket on a Moto and that was impossible.
