Notice to apple that this is not allowed and now they have lost the warranty for manipulating the device? You should no longer manipulate that device under your limited warranty as an independent repairman.

They need qualified technicians for those repairs and Apple does not have them. If they had one they could change a headset when it fails and not the whole screen.

Out jokes. If this is what it says, it seems like a real $@$*

Did the flex cable on the screen you installed have an Apple logo? That’s potentially fine if it’s a used part.

We’re going to host a training session for repair shops on what your legal responsibilities are. Hopefully aiming for beginning of July in conjunction with Repair.org.

In the interim, feel free to send me over any documentation that you have. kyle at ifixit.

@kyle - Did you get a chance to talk with Jessa? Her stuff was ceased by customs.

This would be a great help! Can't wait to see what you pull together. While its important to educate us we also need to have a way to educate the customs officials when we get snagged illegally importing when its legal (the grey area of reconditioned parts)

The problem is Apple (via Customs) is applying the logic if it's sold it must be 'New'. The idea that an industry is out there rebuilding parts is not in their lexicon! Hence, the part must be illegal!

This then gets into proving the part is not new, that its refurbished. Then depending on your countries laws is a refurbished part something that can be legally be sold. You may need to prove you shipped the broken part to that person/company to then state it's the same part being returned.

If you remember a few years ago US Customs squashed a big importer of trademarked parts into the states (iPhone & iPad shells which had the Apple logo & chargers): Chinese Citizen Admits Selling $1.5 Million in Counterfeit Cell Phone Parts. This same one of the sources of the bad iPhone & MacBook charger nightmare we had:

Even still I still see these junk chargers coming in. And know of people having signal issues with the iPhone shells as the antenna insulator material was not as good as what Apple used so their signal strength is not as good as the real part.

if they are original lcds that have had the glass replaced its more than likely the problem as jessa from ipad rehab had the same issue with refurbished screens
