iFixit Student Guides

Here at the Illini Gadget Garage, we want to help as many individuals as we can in repairing their devices and we are able to extend this beyond our own community in assisting iFixit.com in creating online repair guides and troubleshooting solutions for a wide variety of electronic devices available the world over. Illini Gadget Garage staff and volunteers partner with iFixit.edu’s Technical Writing Project – which includes over 65 universities nationwide to teach repair and technical writing to students – to research common device problems and present software and repair solutions to help provide you with the repair processes to keep your devices in working order. Find some of the devices and guides we and other UIUC students worked on below.
