My 2nd generation iPad screen is cracked. I looked into how to replace the screen on my own at iFixIt's site
, but I cannot do that, and would risk damaging it even more since it still functions well enough.
The crack started after it took a fall off the kitchen counter. One corner is cracked and the glass is fraying and two cracks have emerged across the entire screen of the iPad. I've managed to use the iPad for a few months now and not have any problems, but recently the corner that the impact took place, glass shards are emerging.
I read in that iFixIt guide how to replace the iPad screen that part of the removal process is taping the entire glass screen so it won't drop (or explode) glass everywhere and hurt you. But what I'm wondering is can I use a clear tape to just seal the glass and still use the iPad?
What tape would you recommend I use?
Will the iPad still work?
