    Post 8900 Dis-assembly: Pictorial or Video?

    Advertisement



    I have 2 bezels coming in and my first black battery cover just arrived. I'll be doing a bezel swap, and I would like to document it, as I cannot yet find a detailed guide on an 8900 swap.

    Question is, would you guys prefer an amateur 10-15 minute video (it will be my first time taking apart the 8900) or a pictorial?

    Is anyone even interested in this?

    Pictorial preferred. In focus.. lol. The ones that I've seen so far are somewhat blurry at times.

    pix... you can take pics once you get it figured out properly.. though I dont think it will be that difficult for you.

    Pics it is. I would prefer to do both, but taking good quality pictures as I go along would push the video over 20 minutes. No one wants to watch that..

    Can't wait to get my bezels.. Going in a different direction this time Debi, I know you love white but I don't want to over do it

    Do it up man.... Which ever is easiest for you. Ultimately, if you do a video I think it will be more informative. Talking about how something comes off or how much pressure you should apply will come across much better than pics but that's just my $0.02....

    It will be a written pictorial. I wouldn't leave instructions out! :P

    Nice, just did a semi dis-assembly on my GF's 8900, (Media card got stuck and then she broke it in half, one part out, the other stuck in) to get cracked media card out. She too wants the black bezel and I think your instructional would be helpful! Before I did it, she took it to the T-Mobile store where they tried to charge her $25 to take it apart, and void the warranty. Apparently that red sticker with the white line going through it is a indicator, and they are smart by putting it over one of the screws that you have to unscrew to take the mid-plate off.

    This is great! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
    Is there any possibility of making both a photo pictorial as well as a video demonstration? That would give us amateurs even more material to study before we dissect our new berries.

    This would obviously take more work to accomplish, so I definitely understand if you don't have the time to undertake two different demonstrations of disassembling the 8900.

    I would love to see your written pictorial disassemble-reassemble instructions. I am contemplating on getting the black bezel myself.
