The Screen Was shattered
THe repair was successful but the iOpener was not as useful as expected. Essentially it did not warm the glue of the iPad enough to remove the screen well. If doing it again I would likely use a hair dryer or heat gun to warm the iPad more and loosen the glue rather than the iOpener.
The glue does need to be warmed rather a lot to remove the front panel, I found the iOpener to not be as effective as I had expected.
