My 3 yr old son dropped my ipad mini on the edge of wooden floor :-(
Started off by following the ifixit repair guide but also followed a video to complete the repair. After about an hour of heating the ipad to loosen the adhesive i just ripped the whole screen off and peeled off the chips that were left over. the most difficult part and what took me so long was removing all the broken glass but when that was done it was smooth sailing.
I would definitely recommend some type of adhesive remover after getting the front screen off because there is alot of residue leftover.
