@pablo - only Apple can do that. Serial numbers are tied to the logic board.

@valerie - you may want to try and connect it to your computer and see if it is detected. If so, it may just be an issue with the connection to the LCD.

@Andrew - the back case and logic board and the antenna are the main differences. Each of our products to the right will have a 3G option if that part is different. If you are looking to convert, you may just want to sell us your iPad using the Sell It link at the top of our site and use that money towards a 3G model.

Could you go into a little more detail as to the specific hardware differences between a 3G iPad2 and the wifi only model?

@Marcilio - it requires a lot. It really isn't feasible.

Is it possible to convert an iPad 2 16GB WiFi only in a 3G model just buying apropriate 3G Daughter Board and Logic Board parts ? What parts I need to buy to make this upgrade by myself?

If you replace the 16G for a larger Logic Board, are there any other parts that also need to be changed? (like the daughter board, batteries, etc?)

If you have an Ipad 2 16GB and you need to change the logic board, can you install a 32G or 64G board as a replacement?

@eddie - no, it's going to be something else not causing it to work at all. it'll turn on fine with a broken antenna. @Jerry - you should go above the trim.

I replaced my ipad 2 digitizer and broke the wifi antenna. when i power up the ipad it does not work, since the wifi is broken can this be the cause for it not to work? please help.

Does the tool go above or below the rubber trim piece? Will I have to replace any rubber trim when I replace the head phone board?
Brian

One more question :), does the glass with digitizer come with the adhesive tape set for the glass digitizer panel, and the rubber trim piece or should I purchase those separate.
Powerbook Medic

@Brian - it does not.

Does the iPad 2 have a mid-frame piece, I replaced the digitizer on an iPad 1 and didnt realize I needed to replace the mid frame piece because it was stuck to the digitizer.

@josh - depending on the damage, the logic board would need to be replaced. We sell the boards in the part list to the right. For us to repair it would be an additional $45 labor.

I replaced the Digitizer glass and now my touch screen does not work. I've tried resetting it to factory defaults but nothing. What did I do wrong???

@Steve - this video was made on the first day when no one knew what it looked like inside. We still take apart them the same way, but we are just more aware of where those cables are.

This video should be pulled from the web site. I have just taken the digitizer off and I cut a wire on the top and the bottom. If you follow this video you will do the same. Especially if you use the longer tool shown in the video.
Powerbook Medic

@Brian - yes thats most likely the case.

When prying the digitizer off I cut too deep apparently and cut a wire. I can't see where because I didn't fully disassemble. But the power switch doesn't work. Is that the power button ribbon cable assembly that I will need? if I plug in the sync cable, the iPad comes on, so I know it's just the power switch.

Do you sell or do you know where I can buy one of those metal pry tools the tech is using to remove the glass? I am referring to the shovel head looking tool at the begining. He starts out with two of them. Thanks Rich

@Kandelabra - for sure. but typically if you need to go inside of it, you've most likely voided your warranty by dropping or knowingly damaging it. If you think it is just a defective part, check with Apple first.

This would basically void the warranty . . . correct?
